  • vertebrae
  • The vertebrae (spinal bone) collapses as a result of even minor injuries related to falling, bending, twisting, or sneezing. (rxlist.com)
  • soft tissue
  • Tothill P, Hannan, Wilkinson S (2001) Comparisons between a pencil beam and two fan beam dual energy X-ray absorptiometers used for measuring total body bone and soft tissue. (springer.com)
  • The amounts of each X-ray beam that are blocked by bone and soft tissue are compared to each other. (webmd.com)
  • assess
  • The objective is to assess the improvement in Bone Mineral Density and markers of bone turnover in women on TDF/FTC (tenofovir disoproxil fumarate/ emtricitabine)+ ATV/r (atazanavir/ritonavir) in a switch arm (RAL (raltegravir) + ATV/r) vs. an unchanged arm (TDF/FTC + ATV/r). (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • In this post study evaluation, available participants will be scheduled for one clinic visit to assess their current status of the bone density and no treatment is involved. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • mass
  • We all lose some bone mass as we age. (webmd.com)
  • Results are given as a "T-score:" 0 means your bone mass density (BMD) is equal to the norm for a healthy young adult. (everydayhealth.com)
  • My question is for anyone who has a scale like this, or really anyone at all who knows about bone mass and hydration. (3fatchicks.com)
  • Sorry, I didn't mean to mention bone density, it measures bone mass, like how many pounds of my body is bone, as opposed to fat/muscle/water. (3fatchicks.com)
  • I wouldn't worry too much about bone mass on a scale like that. (3fatchicks.com)
  • I did google search the bone mass thing, but I really couldn't find anything, which is why I asked here. (3fatchicks.com)
  • I was really i intereged by this, as ive never heard of a scale that measures bone mass or body water. (3fatchicks.com)
  • Dosn't help you much with the bone mass though, I think if you just keep an eye on it and don't worry about it unless it changes dramatically. (3fatchicks.com)
  • (rxlist.com)
  • Post-menopausal women can lose up to 4% of bone mass annually in the first 10 years following menopause. (rxlist.com)
  • The extent of bone mass built up during childhood and adolescence is the most important determinant of osteoporosis later in life. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Some disabled children, such as those with cerebral palsy, are particularly vulnerable to low bone mass accumulation due to decreased mobility and weight-bearing. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • These children also have poor muscle strength and control, which limits function and contributes to the lack of mechanical stimulation needed to build bone mass. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Whole body vibration has shown promise as an alternative method for stimulating increases in bone mass and improvements in muscle. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • absorptiometry
  • These compartments once were determined separately using different techniques [6- but now they all can be studied using the same technique since technological developments in dual-photon absorptiometry (DPA), originally used for bone density studies [9, now permit evaluation of TBBM, FFM, and F. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • person's
  • Throughout a person's life, old bone tissue is removed and new tissue added. (everydayhealth.com)
  • Bones are their strongest in a person's mid-twenties, so it is important to have a good foundation early on to maintain healthy bones late in life. (rxlist.com)
  • postmenopausal
  • Estimates of the prevalence of osteoporosis vary with the specific definition chosen, but the World Health Organisation has estimated that 30% of all women aged over 50 (postmenopausal) have osteoporosis according to a definition of bone mineral density being more than 2.5 standard deviations below the mean for young healthy adult women at any site.
