The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the normal process of cortical bone acquisition during childhood and adolescence, and the relationship between speed of sound (SOS), measured by the Sound Scan 2000 system, and linear growth. A total of 1689 healthy Japanese children and adolescents (862 males and 827 females, aged 7–19 years) were enrolled in the study. SOS (m/s) was measured at the right tibial midshaft and the standard SOS values in the children and adolescents were generated… CONTINUE READING
