AIMS/INTRODUCTION Previous studies have reported osteoporosis measured by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry in younger patients with type 1 diabetes. Limitations of 2-D imaging, however, limit the precision of dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry for the measurement of bone mineral density and bone strength. MATERIALS AND METHODS Three-dimensional quantitative computed tomography was used to calculate volumetric-bone mineral density (vBMD) and strength in femoral bone subfractions. A total of 17… CONTINUE READING
