Dual energy X-ray absorptiometry measurements in small subjects: conditions affecting clinical measurements.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To document the clinical and experimental situations that may affect DXA measurements in small subjects. METHODS 49 piglets (886g to 21100g) had measurements with either of two pencil beam densitometers (QDR 1000W and QDR 2000 Plus, Hologic Inc, Waltham, MA) using commercial infant (IWB) and adult whole body (AWB) software v5.71p and v5.71… (More)
