OBJECTIVE Many children at risk for osteoporosis have substantial hip and knee contractures that prevent assessment of bone mineral density in the "usual" region, the proximal femur. As an alternative, bone density may be measured in the distal femur projected in the lateral plane. The purpose of this study was to provide normative reference data useful for interpretation of bone density measures in the distal femur of children and adolescents. SUBJECTS AND METHODS The study was a cross… CONTINUE READING
