Lumbar spine bone mineral density (BMD) was measured by quantitative digital radiography, a new dual energy x-ray technique, and by 153Gd dual photon absorptiometry (DPA) in 85 patients. Each patient was measured twice by the new method and once by DPA on the same day, with repositioning between measurements. Serial measurements were made on an hydroxyapatite spine phantom embedded in tissue-equivalent plastic to evaluate the long term reproducibility of each instrument. The spinal BMD… Expand
An evaluation of dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry and comparison with dual-photon absorptiometry
TLDR
DXA offers improvements in measuring BMD over DPA in terms of faster scanning times and improved resolution, resulting in better precision, with the additional advantage of the ability to measure TB composition with high precision. Expand
Vertebral bone mineral density measured laterally by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry
TLDR
If BMD LAT was a better reflection of vertebral body bone mass than BMD AP, and thereby a better predictor of the resistance to crush fracture, the results would suggest that the use of the standard AP view could under- or overestimate spinal fracture risk in about 30% of women screened for osteoporosis. Expand
Precision and stability of dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry measurements
TLDR
The precision and stability of dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry measurements, to compare bone mineral density of subjects measured by DEXA and radionuclide dual-photon absorPTiometry (DPA), and to evaluate different absorber materials for use with an external standard were determined. Expand
Comparison Between Spinal and Radial Bone Mineral Density in Children Measured by X-Ray Absorptiometry
TLDR
It is shown that the measurement of BMD by DXA at distal radius, an easily accessible bone, has a correlation with growth parameters as good as lumbar spine BMD measurements in children. Expand
Comparison of dual photon and dual energy X-ray bone densitometers in a clinic setting
TLDR
The differences between instruments, the potential for greater error in busy clinic environments, and the apparent superiority of dual energy X-ray absorptiometry under these less than ideal conditions are emphasized. Expand
Comparative study of the performances of X-ray and gadolinium 153 bone densitometers at the level of the spine, femoral neck and femoral shaft
TLDR
The results indicate that the higher precision obtained with QDR is particularly significant at the lumbar spine level, but large biological variations in soft tissue thickness can still influence the degree of precision of BMD measurement. Expand
Precision and sensitivity of dual‐energy X‐ray absorptiometry in spinal osteoporosis
This study evaluated the performance of dual‐energy x‐ray absorptiometry (DEXA) with regard to (1) the correlation with dual‐photon absorptiometry (DPA), (2) the ability to discriminate betweenExpand
Lateral scanning of the lumbar spine: Bone mineral density determination with dual energy X-ray absorptiometry
TLDR
Although lateral scanning needs further improvement in precision, lateral scanning of the lumbar spine with DEXA will provide more informations in evaluating age-related bone loss. Expand
Influence of patient's weight on dual-photon absorptiometry and dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry measurements of bone mineral density
TLDR
The results confirm that B MD is positively correlated with weight in postmenopausal women; the influence of weight on BMD is blunted when the Novo Lab 22a DPA machine is used for measuring bone mineral. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that short-term precision of DXA is better than that of SPA only for BMD and surface measurement but not for BMC. Expand

A new scanning dual-photon attenuation method utilizing a 153Gadolinium point source has been evaluated. The method allows precise in vivo determination of the bone mineral content of the lumbarExpand
Comparisons among methods of measuring bone mass and relationship to severity of vertebral fractures in osteoporosis.
TLDR
Bone mass measurements correlate moderately well with each other, but poorly with severity of fracture; other factors in addition to low bone mass may be important in determining whether bone will fracture. Expand
Dual-photon Gd-153 absorptiometry of bone.
TLDR
Dual-photon absorptiometry accurately indicates bone mass and bone density and is only slightly affected by either surrounding tissue or fat changes in bone marrow. Expand
Precision of dual photon absorptiometry measurements.
TLDR
This study investigates the precision of dual photon absorptiometry using a human torso phantom, normal subjects, and abnormal patients to indicate that to be confident of a real change between two scans a difference of at least 5.6% must be measured. Expand
Bone mineral content in early-postmenopausal and postmenopausal osteoporotic women: comparison of measurement methods.
TLDR
There was a high correlation between single- and dual-energy QCT results, indicating that errors due to vertebral fat are not substantial in these postmenopausal women, and single- energy QCT may be adequate and perhaps preferable for assessing post menopausal women. Expand
Influence of vertebral fat content on quantitative CT density.
TLDR
The large uncertainty in the fat content of marrow and the variability in distribution of fat make dual-energy approaches necessary for accurate determinations of vertebral mineral density. Expand

TLDR
The data suggest the existence of two distinct syndromes: one form, "postmenopausal osteoporosis," is characterized by excessive and disproportionate trabecular bone loss, involves a small subset of women in the early postmenopausal period, and is associated with hip fractures or vertebral fractures or both.

TLDR
Quantitative computed tomography was performed in duplicate on 84 patients to test the short-term precision of the technique and it was revealed that precision was not a function of spinal density. Expand

This preliminary evaluation indicates that CT scanning permits measurement of cancellous, cortical or integral bone and may prove an important tool for assessing the axial skeleton is osteoporotic conditions. Expand
