We evaluated the associations between dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) and histologically determined cancellous and cortical bone volume by controlling for vascular calcifications and demographic variables in hemodialysis (HD) patients. Femoral bone mineral density (f-BMD) was associated with cortical porosity. Assessment of bone mass in chronic kidney disease patients is of clinical importance because of the association between low bone volume, fractures, and vascular calcifications. DXA… CONTINUE READING
