  1. Bone mineral density assessed by quantitative ultrasound and dual energy X-ray : absorptiometry normative data in Malmö, Sweden.

    Article - En anglais

    We measured bone mineral density (BMD) in 128 men and 143 women, aged 22-90, by dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) and quantitative ultrasound (QUS).

    We found reduced bone mineral density in relation to age as measured both by DEXA and QUS.

    There was a correlation between 0.28 and 0.52 in men and between 0.53 and 0.77 in women when comparing DEXA and QUS measurements.

    When including only persons with low bone mass, the correlation was less.
