June 2024: BHI reference curves in 12 populations

New results on Bone Health Index reference curves for 12 populations spanning Asia, Africa, Europe, and North America were presented at the recent International Conference on Children’s Bone Health in Salzburg.

This was joint work by America Liliana (Mexico), David Martin (Germany) and Peter Thrane & HH Thodberg (Visiana).

The reference curves displayed approximately the same shape, and the variation between populations could be described by a scaling factor for each population shown in the bar plot, ranging from 95 to 103%, with the exception of 87% for India.
