Can ultrasound be used to estimate bone mineral density in children with growth problems?

Abstract

AIM To assess predictability of bone mineral density (BMD) of the lumbar spine (LS) determined by dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) using by ultrasound speed of sound of the right and left radii (SOS-R and SOS-L) in patients with growth problems. METHODS Ultrasound and DXA were compared in patients with advanced, normal and delayed bone ages assessed… (More)
