Comparative Evaluation of Two Noninvasive Methods of Study of Bone Density in Women of Uzbek Population

D.Sh. Azizova, G.D. Azizova, L.S. Nurmukhamedova


40 women aged 50–60 years were examined by ultrasonic and X-ray densitometry to assess bone mineral density. For the diagnosis of osteoporosis and osteopenia and the administration of appropriate therapy it is necessary to measure bone density by X-ray densitometry. In order to identify groups at risk for disorders of bone mineral density in a large cohort of postmenopausal women, it is possible to use ultrasound densitometry.
