Effect of bovine bone constituents on broadband ultrasound attenuation measurements.

Abstract

Broadband ultrasound attenuation (BUA) has been found to correlate positively with bone mineral density (BMD) measured by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry. However, because there is a significant amount of unexplained variation in this correlation, it has been suggested that BUA might also provide information about bone structure. The purpose of this study… (More)
