Abstract: The aim of the study was to establish population ranges of bone mineral density (BMD) for Hong Kong Chinese men and women for the Hologic QDR 2000 bone densitometer, to compare these values with the manufacturer’s reference ranges, to compare these values with population ranges for women obtained for the Norland X26 bone densitometer, and to examine variations between the two densitometers. The subjects were 164 men aged 40–79 years and 436 women aged 20–89 years, who were all ethnic… CONTINUE READING
