Calcium DXA: Impact of Calcium Supplements on Lumbar Spine Bone Mineral Density
Impact of Calcium Supplements on Lumbar Spine Bone Mineral Density

We, the investigators at the University of Wisconsin, hypothesized that ingesting calcium tablets prior to a spine bone density scan will not affect the bone mineral density as measured by dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA).

We hypothesized that ingesting calcium tablets prior to a spine bone density scan will not affect the bone mineral density as measured by DXA. To test this, 36 subjects ingested various calcium supplements after a spine DXA scan and were then scanned again 15, 30 and 45 minutes after ingestion. Subsequently a subset of 15 subjects had three spine scans performed for instrument precision and subsequently ingested a calcium tablet with scans 15 and 30 minute intervals after ingestion.
