  • femur
  • Our results demonstrate that non-cirrhotic untreated CHC patients have lower BMD at the femur as compared to healthy men in spite of the absence of significant bone and mineral abnormalities. (blogspot.com)
  • forearm
  • Our results suggest that distal ulnar HU measurements of ≤146 HU are strongly associated with low BMD and that values above this cutoff accurately rule out low forearm BMD with a high degree of sensitivity and negative predictive value. (ovid.com)
  • diabetic foot
  • We are quantitatively assessing the bone mineral density (BMD) in foot bones to develop biomarkers of diabetic foot disease (i.e., neuropathic arthropathy, foot deformities, etc.) for (1) predicting outcomes, (2) following disease progression, and (3) measuring treatment efficacy 3 .

  • GUEST EDITORIAL O&G Forum 2006;16:101 Measurement of bone mineral density The method of measuring BMD is of critical importance in diagnosis and in decisions regarding treatment. (journals.co.za)
  • The value of the BMD expressed as a T-score depends on (a) the method of measurement and the measuring device (b) the particular bone and the site chosen and (c) the mean and distribution of the values of BMD in the chosen reference population of young healthy adults. (journals.co.za)
