When measured by dual-photon absorptiometry (DPA), the adjusted annual rate of change in bone mineral density (BMD) of the lumbar spine was 0.11±0.51 (SE) % in 44 healthy postmenopausal women with radiographic abnormalities in the scan field and −0.97±0.26% in 249 women with normal lateral lumbar radiographs (p=0.046). Rates of loss of BMD from the radius were similar in the 2 groups. Spurious rates of loss of spine BMD are likely to be found in subjects with calcification of the aorta… CONTINUE READING
