Mapping of Quantitative Ultrasound of the Calcaneus Bone to Chromosome 1 by Genome-Wide Linkage Analysis


Quantitative ultrasound (QUS) may predict the risk of fracture independent of bone density. The aim of this study was to identify, using quantitative trait linkage analysis, chromosomal regions that might contain genes influencing variation in calcaneal ultrasound measures in a set of families from the general population. A genome-wide autosomal scan was… (More)
