Abstract

Normative population data are reported here for velocity of ultrasound in tibial cortical bone in a population-based sample of both men and women (n=371). The cortical measurement is highly precise with reproducibility of the order of 0.5%. As with heel and patellar trabecular velocity, tibial cortical velocity declines with age from the fourth through the ninth decades. The rate is 1.7 m/s per year in men and 4.1 m/s per year in women. Tibial cortical velocity values correlate with patellar velocity and with forearm mineral, with correlation coefficients ranging from + 0.46 to +0.54 in women and +0.27 to +0.43 in men (P
