Axial transmission velocity of a low-frequency first arriving signal (V LF) was assessed in the radius and tibia of 254 females, and compared to site-matched pQCT measurements. V LF best correlated with cortical BMD, but significantly also with subcortical BMD and cortical thickness. Correlations were strongest for the radius in postmenopausal females. Ultrasonic low-frequency (LF; 0.2–0.4 MHz) axial transmission, based on the first arriving signal (FAS), provides enhanced sensitivity to… CONTINUE READING
