Do ultrasound measurements on the os calcis reflect more the bone microarchitecture than the bone mass?: a two-dimensional histomorphometric study.

Abstract

Few studies have analyzed the relationship between ultrasound measurements (US) and corresponding histomorphometric parameters of the calcaneus. To address this question we have compared US and histomorphometric parameters in 17 whole human os calcis from amputation or necropsy. Speed of sound (SOS), broadband ultrasound attenuation (BUA), and bone mineral… (More)
