OBJECTIVE The present study was designed to assess the reproducibility and the diagnostic sensitivity of the amplitude-dependent speed of sound (SoS) at the distal metaphysis of the proximal phalanges. METHOD Fourteen presumably healthy volunteers were repeatedly measured every 6 weeks for approximately 6 months in order to assess the reproducibility of the SoS of the phalanges. We recruited 91 post-menopausal women, aged 55-75 years, who were divided in three groups according to their lumbar… CONTINUE READING
