This totally up-to-date and dramatically accelerated version will permit kin physicians and experts to completely comprehend not just what they should do, but in addition why. New to this edition-over part the book-are discussions of the medical guidance for choosing sufferers for densitometry measurements, quite a few questionnaires and indices which were built to assist sufferers determine themselves as applicants for bone mass measurements, and particular densitometry purposes of analysis, fracture probability prediction, and tracking adjustments in bone density. up-to-date fabric contains an elevated evaluation of the results of ailments and medication on bone density, new standardization formulation for the hip subregions and forearm, statistical units essential to "test the test," and advice on tips to do a temporary precision examine and follow the end result to scientific perform. An accompanying CD-ROM encompasses a Precision Calculator, a Statistical self assurance Calculator for Measured switch in BMD, OST Nomograms, a sufferer threat issue Questionnaire, and a CME evaluation, which, if effectively accomplished, may end up in 30 hours of AMA type I carrying on with schooling credits.

The accuracy of QCT for measurements of spine BMD can be affected by the presence of marrow fat (70–72). Marrow fat increases with age, resulting in an increasingly large error in the accuracy of spine QCT measurements in older patients. The accuracy of QCT is reported to range from 5 to 15%, depending on the age of the patient and percentage of marrow fat. The presence of marrow fat results in an underestimation of bone density in the young of about 20 mg/cm3 and as much as 30 mg/cm3 in the elderly (70).
