Adolescents with atypical anorexia nervosa have higher bone mass density on average than adolescents with anorexia nervosa, but still experience significant deficits in fat mass index.
Lateral areal bone mineral density can identify microstructural heterogeneities that are independent of age and has advantages over anterior-posterior DXA scanning for fracture risk assessment.
Evaluation and treatment rates in men at risk for osteoporosis are strikingly low.
Ultrasonography of the calcaneus is efficient for screening bone health.
