Recent advances in bone densitometry

Abstract

The past five years have seen the rapid development of new imaging techniques for quantifying skeletal integrity. Dual X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) was introduced in 1987 and quickly superseded the older technology of dual photon absorptiometry (DPA) [1-3]. The replacement of the gadolinium-153 radionuclide source with a X-ray tube brought significant… (More)
