Reference Curve and Diagnostic Sensitivity for a New Ultrasound Device for the Phalanages, the DBMsonic 1200, in Belgian Women

Abstract

Quantitative ultrasound (US) applied in bone mass measurements is promising because it is a radiation-free and cheap technique that may provide information on bone quality. The DBMsonic 1200 (IGEA, Carpi) is such a new ultrasound device that measures mean amplitude-dependent speed of sound through the distal metaphyses of the four proximal phalanges… (More)
