Table 3 The distribution of women with and without a fracture and hip fracture according to the V LF and BMD values

From: Association between low-frequency ultrasound and hip fractures - comparison with DXA-based BMD

  NF Fx 1997–2010 Hip Fx 1997–2010
  (n = 360) (n = 130) (n = 20)
VLF Highest 25% 101 (28) 24 (18) 5 (25)*
25% to 75% 170 (47) 69 (53) 5 (25)
Lowest 25% 89 (25) 37 (28) 10 (50)
Femoral neck BMD Normal 73 (20) 11 (8)* 2 (10)*
Osteopenic 206 (57) 65 (50) 8 (40)
  Osteoporotic 81 (23) 54 (42) 10 (50)
