University of Michigan
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT00892853
First received: May 1, 2009
Last updated: August 30, 2011
Last verified: August 2011
  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to determine if there is a link between calcium build up in the veins or arteries (including the veins/arteries of the heart) and deterioration of the bone. This will help understand if there is a connection between heart disease and bone disease.


Condition Intervention
Vascular Calcification
Atherosclerosis
Bone Density

Further study details as provided by University of Michigan:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine if there is a connection between heart disease and bone disease through correlation of bone density with the calcium deposited in the coronary arteries. [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 300
Study Start Date: February 2009
Estimated Primary Completion Date: February 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Bone Density Scanning
To acquire high resolution images of the bones and aid in determining bone density.
Procedure: CT of the bones
A CT scan will be performed on one arm and one leg for the purpose of acquiring images for this research study.
