Effect of Anthropometric Adjustments on BMD and BMC Z-Scores in a Population of Prader-Willi Syndrome Pediatric PatientsJournal of Orthopaedic Translation
AbstractTwo adjustment models were applied to a dataset of bone-mineral density (BMD) and bone-mineral content (BMC) from dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) measurements of pediatric patients with Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS). One model used weight, height and % body fat (WHF) in the calculation of Z-scores in addition to race, sex and age already included in the standard model. As percent body fat is not always available, a second model with only weight and height was also examined (WH).
