Objectives: X-linked hypophosphatemia (XLH) is a rare genetic disorder of phosphate metabolism caused by mutations in the PHEX gene. This pilot study aims to apply novel imaging techniques to asses the musculoskeletal phenotype of XLH patients by bidirectional axial transmission (BDAT) ultrasound, magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) and high resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography (HR-pQCT).Methods: BDAT bone ultrasound of the radius and...

Neurofibromatosis type I (NF1) is a monogenetic disorder caused by mutations in the NF1 gene encoding for the Ras-GAP protein neurofibromin. Apart from benign tumour development NF1 is frequently associated with skeletal manifestations such as osteopenia or debilitating focal skeletal dysplasia. To assess a function of Nf1 in osteocytes we here apply a combinatorial approach of biophysical, histological and molecular techniques allowing differential analysis ...
