Are Bone, Nutritional and Cardiovascular Status of French Children and Adolescents, Correlated With Their Vitamin D Status?
To study the correlation between bone assessment by high-resolution peripheral quantitative
computed tomography (HR-pQCT) and vitamin D serum concentration.
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Health Services Research
To study the correlation between the results of bone microarchitecture obtained by high-resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography (HR-pQCT) and vitamin D serum concentration.
The HR-pQCT evaluates bones down to the level of the tiny individual elements that nature configures in a way that makes bones as strong as possible. HR-pQCT measures bone density and quantifies the three dimensional geometry, strength and microarchitecture of bone at the lower arm (radius) and lower leg (tibia).
