Peripheral quantitative computed tomography (pQCT) is increasingly being used to measure bone mineral density (BMD) in both research and clinical practice to monitor BMD changes. Repeated measurements in long-term follow-up study are an appropriate method to study the pattern of bone loss and the diagnostic value critically depends upon the precision (reproducibility). Positioning is one of the sources of imprecision. In this study, BMD at the locations around 4% length of the tibia and radius… CONTINUE READING
