Renal osteodystrophy (ROD) can be characterized by both high (HT) and low (LT) bone turnover states. Although bone biopsy remains the "gold standard" to diagnose ROD, noninvasive tools for the diagnosis and follow-up of such bone disease are desirable. Recently, ultrasound (US) techniques, proposed to assess skeletal status, have been shown to be correlated not only with bone density but also with bone quality. We have investigated 98 patients on chronic hemodyalisis (HD) and 98 healthy, sex… CONTINUE READING
