The widespread availability of quantitative ultrasound (QUS) and X-ray absorptiometry densitometers raises the question of whether a combination of QUS and bone mineral density (BMD) measurements could provide a clinically useful method of enhancing the prediction of fracture risk. The aim of this study was to examine whether a combination of axial BMD and… CONTINUE READING
