Three commercial ultrasound bone scanners designed for os calcis measurements (Lunar Achilles, C.U.B.A. “Research” and UBA 575) were compared using the Leeds Ultrasonic Bone Phantoms. The porosity of the phantoms ranged from 50% to 83% with velocities between 1490 and 1621 m s−1 and broadband ultrasound attenuation (BUA) values in the range 46–115 dB MHz−1. The three devices tested were able to discriminate porosity differences of at least 3%, although the values obtained for the propagation… CONTINUE READING
