The World Health Organisation (WHO) has proposed a set of guidelines for the diagnosis of osteoporosis in adult women based on a measurement of bone mineral density (BMD) expressed as the number of SD below young adult mean (t-score). In this study, we investigated the number of subjects classified as either osteopenic or osteoporotic according to these guidelines using dual X-ray absorptiometry (DXA), at the hip, at the spine and at the lower forearm and quantitative ultrasound (QUS), at the… CONTINUE READING
