"The six-day standstill remains important in ensuring the biosecurity of this country - but QUs
provide farmers with flexibility."
Bone mass was measured at the heel using quantitative ultrasound (QUS
) (Sahara Hologic sonometer, Hologic Inc., MA, USA).
Group comparisons with respect to the Calcaneus QUS
measurement and according to physical activity are shown in Table II.
Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) analysis was performed, and we calculated the areas under the curve (AUC) in order to determine the ability of QUS
and DXA (lumbar spine and femoral neck) to discriminate subjects with or without vertebral fractures.
at the heel was performed using the Achilles InSight device (GE Medical Systems Ultrasound, GE Healthcare, Chalfont St.
measurements were performed at the heel using the Sahara[R] Clinical Bone Sonometer (Hologic Inc., Waltham, MA, USA).
Results: The precision of the QUS
parameters varied from 1.77-1.78, whereas the reliability ranged from 92.2%-98.6%.
Phase two was limited to those subjects with positive answers to GALS screening questions, or who had shaded an area of pain in the last three months on the manikin, or a T-score greater than -1.5 on QUS
. Phase two involved validation of the positive answers by a rheumatologist who performed a thorough locomotor examination within one week of the initial interview.
Anamnesis, risk factor analysis, a detailed clinical examination and QUS
enable timely detection of patients at increased risk for osteoporosis and thereby reduction of unnecessary expenses of diagnostics and treatment of possible complications .
In this way, there were always four collectors (two on QuS
and two on DSQm) conducting the samplings.
State Street Global Advisors (SSGA) has announced the launch of the SPDR MSCI Quality Mix USA ETF (QUS
), which provides broad U.S.

The ultimate bearing capacity of a single pile based on empirical methods using SPT-T test results (Qu) can be expressed as the ultimate tip resistance (Qut) and ultimate shaft resistance (Qus
), equation (2).
Application of quantitative ultrasound (QUS
) to measure acoustic parameters of bone structure (2,5,6,8,14,15) can enable the detection of changes and information about deviations from the normal condition caused by diseases (14,16-18) such as osteoporosis (13,19,20), osteomyelitis (10), and osteoarthritis.
Quantitative ultrasound (QUS
) measurement using AOS-100 (Aloka, Tokyo, Japan) was performed for evaluation of the bone density of the right calcaneus.
