26 European centres participated in a concerted research action Biomedical Engineering: Quantitative Assessment of Osteoporosis. With a newly designed European spine and forearm phantom, the stability, accuracy, precision of dual energy absorption (DXA) and quantitative computer tomography (QCT) densitometry machines have been evaluated. Marked and clinically significant differences were found between brands and between techniques. Cross-calibration formulae have been made and normative data… CONTINUE READING
