Feasibility and reproducibility using HRpQCTII in children and adolescents

Kent Kyla , Whalen Jessica , Strickland Ariana , Leonard Mary , Burghardt Andrew J.

We recruited 60 healthy volunteers ages 5 to 21 to perform scan-rescan precision tests on the XtremeCT II. Participants were positioned in a carbon fiber immobilization cast. iPad-based video content was used to facilitate motion-free compliance. Distal radius and tibia scans were acquired starting 2 mm proximal to the proximal margin of the growth plate or growth plate remnant. Diaphyseal radius and tibia scans were centered at an offset from the same landmark, corresponding ...

Bone strength and microarchitectural deficits in children with cystinosis

Burghardt Andrew , Kent Kyla , Long Jin , Whalen Jessica , Phelps Maira , Leonard Mary

Children with cystinosis have numerous risk factors for impaired bone accrual. We used state-of-the-art quantitative imaging of bone microarchitecture (HR-pQCT) to measure trabecular and cortical microstructure and bone strength in children and adolescents (5-20yrs) with cystinosis. We enrolled 20 cystinosis patients and recruited 34 healthy age- and gender- matched controls. Distal radius and tibia HR-pQCT scans (XtremeCT II, Scanco Medical) were acquired 2...

Sex and maturation effects on trabecular and cortical microarchitecture in children and young adults

Aye Tandy , Long Jin , Kent Kyla , Whalen Jessica , Strickland Ariana , Burghardt Andrew , Leonard Mary B

The impact of sex and maturation on trabecular (Tb) and cortical (Ct) microarchitecture in children and young adults has not been well established. The new second-generation high-resolution peripheral quantitative CT (HR-pQCT) scanner (XCT II, Scanco Medical) incorporates three important advances to provide greater spatial resolution, direct measures of Tb thickness and spacing and measures in the Ct midshaft. The aim of this study was to identify sex and maturation effects on...
