The assessment of skeletal integrity by the measurement of ultrasonic velocity through the calcaneus has only recently become widely available and is usually made in conjunction with the measurement of broadband ultrasonic attenuation. Using data obtained with a contact ultrasonic bone analyser (CUBA) system, this report examines whether ultrasonic studies of the heel require the measurement of true velocity of sound in the calcaneus (Vbone), or whether heel velocity (Vheel, defined as the mean… CONTINUE READING
