    The article reports that adding a bisphosphonate to calcium and vitamin D supplementation does not further increase bone mineral density (BMD) in Crohn's disease. In a study, researchers randomly assigned 155 Crohn's disease patients with low BMD to receive either etidronate, or no treatment....

    Background: Pencil beam dual energy x ray absorptiometry (DXA) has been shown to provide valid estimates of body fat (%BF), but DXA fan beam technology has not been adequately tested to determine its validity. Objective: To compare %BF estimated from fan beam DXA with %BF determined using two...

    The ability to assess a patient’s risk of fracture is fundamental to the clinical role of bone densitometry. Fracture discrimination is quantified by the relative risk (RR), defined as the increased risk of fracture for a 1 standard deviation decrease in bone mineral density (BMD). The...
