European semi-anthropomorphic phantom for the cross-calibration of peripheral bone densitometers: assessment of precision accuracy and stability.

Abstract:

A semi-anthropomorphic 'distal radius like' phantom, developed by Kalender and Ruegsegger for use in peripheral bone densitometry using single photon (DPA) dual X-ray (DXA) and quantitative computed tomography (QCT) machines, has been studied with a view to cross-calibrating different types and brands of densitometers in current use. In the context of an EU 'Concerted Action' (second Framework Programme) the phantom was repeatedly measured on six SPA machines, three DXA machines and nine QCT ...
