At the follow up visit quantitative ultrasound, a tool measuring bone density, was used to measure BUA of the calcaneum.
The most commonly used bone density measurement tests are dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) of the hip and lumbar spine, as well as quantitative ultrasound of the heel, although current diagnostic and treatment criteria are based on DXA tests alone.
The findings suggest that quantitative ultrasound is a useful tool in detecting impaired bone quality in postmenopausal women with type 2 diabetes, and that it might have greater promise than DXA in detecting bone defects in diabetic patients, the authors wrote.
Description Quantitative Ultrasound (QUS) is a non-invasive adjunct tool applied to the appendicular skeleton for diagnosing osteoporosis and identifying fracture risk (FDA, 1998).
Considering invasive, ionizing, and non-ionizing techniques, they discuss such topics as microscopy and related techniques, radiogrammetry, and quantitative ultrasound.
Quantitative ultrasound of the calcaneous reflects the mechanical properties of calcaneal trabecular bone.
Heel quantitative ultrasound scans were conducted in 74 premenopausal women aged 35-55 years with type 1 diabetes and in 229 controls.
