Abstract

QUS (Quantitative Ultrasound) is noticed as a method for measurement of
qualitative characteristics of bone. We assessed the effects of Ca, P, Alk Phos, PTH
and vit D on parameters of QUS of heel (SOS, BUA and SI) and compared them
with effects of above parameters on DXA results.
In 211 normal individual (127 women and 44 men) enrolled in the IMOS study
(Iranian serum Ca, P.Alk Phos PTH and vit D was obtained )Multi center
Osteoporosis Study and Ca corrected with albumin .After that QUS of heel and
BMD of spinal and femoral region was done .The mean of age of women and men
was respectively 47.7± 12.1 and 43.4± 15.6. 29% of women were menopause.
There was no relation between serum parameters and menopausal status ( Alk
Phos had a weak relationship with menopausal status). Ca, P, PTH and Vit D
showed no significant relation with BMD of spinal region and femoral neck, SOS
(Speed of sound) and SI (Stiffness Index) . Vit D and BUA (Broadband Ultrasound
Attenuation) had a weak relation. Alk Phos had a weak relationship with BMD in
different regions, SOS, BUA and SI.
We conclude that QUS parameters and BMD of spin a and femoral region are
not affected by serum biochemical and PTH and Vit d status.
