The aim of this real-life cross-sectional explorative study was to compare radiofrequency echographic multi-spectrometry (REMS) with dual-energy X-rays absorptiometry (DXA) in the BMD assessment of patients receiving peritoneal dialysis (PD).

Abstract

The aim of this real-life cross-sectional explorative study was to compare radiofrequency echographic multi-spectrometry (REMS) with dual-energy X-rays absorptiometry (DXA) in the BMD assessment of patients receiving peritoneal dialysis (PD). Furthermore, we investigated the relationship between lumbar aortic calcifications (AOCs) and the DXA lumbar measurements.
