The bone material density of the lumbar vertebra, tibial neck and Ward's triangle
of every research subject was measured using dual-energy x-rays absorptiometry (GE, USA).
In this paper, we further investigated and extended the correlations between five hip bone BMD values and the relative cross-sectional areas of forearm cortical bone: total femur, femoral trochanter, femoral inter-trochanter, and femoral ward's triangle
as well as femoral neck.
Bone mineral density was measured from the femoral neck, ward's triangle
and lumbar spine, in patients 25-55 years of age, who were diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis.
The BMD of the whole body, the lumbar spine and left hip sites (total, neck, trochanter, intertrochanter and Ward's triangle
) were measured using dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry.
BMD was measured at the lumbar vertebrae (L2-4) and the hip (the femoral neck, Ward's triangle
and trochanter) with dual energy x-ray absorptiometry and a Norland XR-46 scanner (Ford Atkinson, WI.
The BMD measurements were taken at the proximal femur, femoral neck, trochanter, intertrochanter, and Ward's triangle
0.838, p < 0.001; Ward's triangle
0.816 g/[cm.sup.2] vs.
After 1 year, bone mineral density differed significantly between DHEA-treated and placebo-treated women at several sites, including the femoral neck, Ward's triangle
, and the upper and total radius.
Subjects completed a questionnaire on health and life-style characteristics and attended Addenbrooke's Hospital for BMD measurements of the spine (L2-L4) and hip (neck, trochanter and Ward's triangle
) by dual X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) using the Hologic QDR-1000 (Hologic Inc, Waltham, MA, USA).
Bone mineral density measurements: Bone mineral density of lumbar spine (LS, L1-L4), total hip (TH), femoral neck (FN), trochanter (Tro) and ward's triangle
(WT) were measured by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) (QDR-4500A; Hologic, Waltham, MA).
After six months, geniVida significantly stopped bone loss in the femoral neck and Ward's Triangle
of the hip compared to losses of 1.2% and 1.1%, respectively, in the calcium placebo.
Bone mineral density was significantly lower in the depressed group than in controls at the lumbar spine, femoral neck, trochanter, and Ward's triangle
