原始语种摘要: Aim: We aimed to compare lumbar and femoral neck bone mineral density (BMD) values of geriatric and non-geriatric adult male populations, to find the correlation and the rates of concordance-discordance between BMD values of these two anatomic regions within both age groups. Material and Method: Two hundred and forty men were recruited and divided into two groups, geriatric (n=126) and non-geriatric (n=114). Lumbar spine (L1-4) and left femoral neck BMD were measured using dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA). Concordance, minor, and major discordance rates were determined. BMD values of these two age groups were compared. The correlations between BMD values of lumbar and femoral regions within both age groups were calculated. Results: The mean BMD of geriatric men was significantly...
