OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the frequency and severity of osteopenia and osteoporosis in patients with thalassemia major who undergo dual energy x-ray absorptiometry, and correlate these fin...
This study compared the bone health of KS patients who were actively monitored in our clinic by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) with that of a control group of healthy volunteers.
The primary objective of the study is to explore the relationship between a new image technology (ImaTx), that analyzes the trabecular structure of the bone using digitized radiographs and...
This study is to compare the two medications Denosumab and Zoledronic Acid For Patients With Beta Thalassemia Major Induced Osteoporosis. Patients with B-thalassemia major induce osteoporo...
This trial will test the hypothesis that among 20 children and adolescents from Children's Hospital, Boston with Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, systemic-onset juvenile rheumatoid a...
Osteoporosis remains a major health concern due to high incidence of fragility fractures followed by higher mortality and morbidity. Implementation of guidelines for diagnosis and treatment of osteopo...
Accumulation of visceral fat (VF) in children increases the risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes, and measurement of VF in children using computed tomography and magnetic resonance imagi...
Quantitative computed tomography (QCT) of the lumbar spine is used as an alternative to dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry in assessing bone mineral density (BMD). The average BMD of L1-L2 is the standa...
Bone densitometry (e.g., dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry or "DXA") is strongly associated with osteoporosis treatment; however, rates of DXA are low. While studies have demonstrated a continued need ...
Osteoporosis is disproportionately common in rheumatology patients. For the past three decades, the diagnosis of osteoporosis has benefited from well-established practice guidelines that emphasized th...
Reduction of bone mass without alteration in the composition of bone, leading to fractures. Primary osteoporosis can be of two major types: postmenopausal osteoporosis (OSTEOPOROSIS, POSTMENOPAUSAL) and age-related or senile osteoporosis.
A method of producing a high-quality scan by digitizing and subtracting the images produced by high- and low-energy x-rays.
The amount of mineral per square centimeter of BONE. This is the definition used in clinical practice. Actual bone density would be expressed in grams per milliliter. It is most frequently measured by X-RAY ABSORPTIOMETRY or TOMOGRAPHY, X RAY COMPUTED. Bone density is an important predictor for OSTEOPOROSIS.
The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.
The lateral extension of the spine of the SCAPULA and the highest point of the SHOULDER.
