Peripheral quantitative computed tomography (pQCT) is a bone densitometry technique that is able to provide real volumetric bone density values not only of the total but also of trabecular and cortical bone separately. Normal reference curves were constructed with cross-sectional data obtained in 275 postmenopausal women (50-85 years), measured at 4% of the ulnar length (ultradistal region), and data for total, trabecular, and cortical bone density were obtained. In these postmenopausal… CONTINUE READING
