SummaryQuantitative ultrasound (QUS) has been found to be a safe and reliable method for evaluating bone mineral density (BMD). Using calcaneal QUS techniques, the current study contributes to remedying this gap in the literature by establishing normative data among children and adolescents from Colombia.IntroductionMinimal data on BMD changes are available from populations in developing countries. BMD reference values for children and adolescents have not been published for a Latin-American… CONTINUE READING
