Which vertebrae should be assessed using lateral dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry of the lumbar spine

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine precision and diagnostic capability of bone mineral density measurements using lateral dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) of the lumbar spine in supine position. Duplicate postero-anterior (PA) and lateral DXA measurements were performed in 60 women. Precision errors of the single vertebral levels using lateral… (More)
