BACKGROUND In end-stage renal disease, average bone mineral density has been reported to be normal or only modestly reduced, more so in the cortical bone. The purpose of the present study was to explore the potential use of quantitative ultrasound, a method reflecting both quantitative and qualitative properties of bone, in assessing bone status in patients on maintenance haemodialysis. METHODS We studied 71 patients (age 17-81 years, time on dialysis 0-18 years). The speed of sound waves… CONTINUE READING
