Quantitative ultrasound and dual-energy x ray absorptiometry in bone status assessment of expreterm infants

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Preterm infants are at increased risk of low bone mass. Quantitative ultrasound (QUS) is a non-invasive method for assessment of bone status. The application of QUS in a cohort of ex-preterm infants was investigated. This study suggests that QUS cannot be used as a surrogate for dual-energy x ray absorptiometry.
