T-score Comparability Between GE Lunar Prodigy and Norland Excel Densitometers
Differences in determining bone density scores have been found when comparing different bone density machines. Reducing differences between machines will improve diagnostic agreement for patients measured at different clinics. This study will test if this difference exists between the Norland Excel, such as the one at Wildwood Clinic, and the GE Healthcare Lunar Prodigy at the UW Osteoporosis Clinical Research Center.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
The eight bones of the wrist: SCAPHOID BONE; LUNATE BONE; TRIQUETRUM BONE; PISIFORM BONE; TRAPEZIUM BONE; TRAPEZOID BONE; CAPITATE BONE; and HAMATE BONE.
Bone Density Conservation Agents
Agents that inhibit BONE RESORPTION and/or favor BONE MINERALIZATION and BONE REGENERATION. They are used to heal BONE FRACTURES and to treat METABOLIC BONE DISEASES.
Bone Demineralization Technique
Removal of mineral constituents or salts from bone or bone tissue. Demineralization is used as a method of studying bone strength and bone chemistry.
The measurement of the density of a material by measuring the amount of light or radiation passing through (or absorbed by) the material.
A carpal bone with a rounded head located between the TRAPEZOID BONE and the HAMATE BONE.
The objective of this study is to determine if an intervention with a fracture manager to arrange bone densitometry after a hip fracture is more effective in diagnosing and treating osteop...
People with cystic fibrosis (CF) now frequently live into adulthood and with this extended life expectancy has come new clinical problems. Poor bone health, including osteoporosis and bon...
Following liver transplantation, rapid bone loss occurs, particularly within the first 6 months post-transplant. This may be associated with fractures, most notable vertebral. The ability...
This study will evaluate the effectiveness of a new bone injection technique for treating bone disease in patients with polyostotic fibrous dysplasia or McCune-Albright syndrome. In these...
The aim of this experimental study was to test the effect of increasing dietary calcium intake to 1500 mg/day on increases in bone quality in adolescent females. The hypothesis to be teste...
To assess the effect of the application in routine clinical practice of a proposal of thresholds for the indication of bone densitometry in Spanish postmenopausal women.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the process of bone repair in rats submitted to low-level laser therapy using optical densitometry. A total of 45 rats which underwent femoral osteotomy were rand...
Techniques in bone densitometry have made remarkable progress in the past quarter-century and are now widely used in the daily practice of osteoporosis. Since the skeletal site and the method of measu...
Pediatric proximal femur dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) scans present analytic challenges because of the lack of standard points of reference in the growing skeleton. The Iowa Bone Development...
In contrast to the two distinct energy regions that are involved in dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry for bone densitometry, the complete spectrum of a beam transmitted through two layers of different...
