Therefore, the BMD measurement of forearm is valuable in the detection of cortical bone loss by PHPT. However, forearm measurement is not routinely recommended for the diagnosis of osteoporosis in PHPT. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the importance and priority of forearm BMD measurement in PHPT.<p ...
