Dual X-Ray Absorptiometry Whole Body Composition of Bone Tissue in Rheumatoid Arthritis-a Cross-Sectional Study
Journal of Clinical Medicine CASE REPORTS CASE REPORTS 19 Maedica A Journal of Clinical Medicine
Objectives: Previous studies of bone tissue in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) using dual X-ray absorpti-ometry (DXA) concentrated on regions of interest that were used to diagnose osteoporosis. This study aimed to compare the whole body bone tissue (wbBT) of RA patients with healthy subjects and to identify the RA variables which significantly predict wbBT. Methods: The study was cross-sectionally designed to include postmenopausal RA patients and age-matched healthy female controls. All 107 RAfatcat:cyzsvfokovh43krtyyhm5dkebu
