Tibial quantitative ultrasonometry is a relatively novel technique in the field of bone sonometry, an emerging alternative to bone densitometry. The implementation of this technique in a pediatric population could prove valuable from a clinical as well as a research viewpoint. In clinical practice it is necessary to know the precision of this technique and the possible influence on measurements before implementation. This study presents the precision in a Caucasian pediatric population and the… CONTINUE READING
