Abstract: Quantitative ultrasound (QUS) assessment at the calcaneus has been found to be a safe and reliable method for evaluating skeletal status. In this study we have determined the normative QUS data in the Spanish population for the Sahara Clinical Sonometer (Hologic). Broadband ultrasound attenuation (BUA), speed of sound (SOS), quantitative ultrasound index (QUI) and estimated bone mineral density (BMD) were determined. We also studied the precision in vivo and in vitro. The short-term in vivo precision (CV) was 4.88% for BUA, 0.36% for SOS, 3.45% for QUI and 4.15% for BMD, while in vitro precision was 0.40% for SOS and 2.67% for BUA. Our results are comparable to reference population data previously published in other countries and may serve as reference normative data for both,genders in Spain.
