Vertebral morphometry: repeat scan precision using the Lunar Expert-XL and the Hologic 4500A. A study for the 'WISDOM' RCT of hormone replacement therapy.

Abstract:

On radiation safety grounds there is concern about the morbidity attributable to routine radiographs of the spine for the identification of new fractures in large-scale trials of fracture prevention. However, the role of the potentially safer low-radiation-dose technique of vertebral morphometry performed by third generation dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry equipment requires evaluation for use in clinical trials. We have therefore investigated the short-term inter-scan imprecision as well as...
