Abstract/OtherAbstract:
CONCLUSION: The results indicate that tibial speed of sound was reduced in premature infants (in particular very low birth weight) compared to full-term infants even when premature infants reached the corrected age of their full-term peers. The potential role of this technique in assessing osteopenia in premature infants warrants further exploration.
