Several established methods are used to size adjust dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) measurements in children. However, there is no consensus as to which method is most diagnostically accurate. All size-adjusted bone mineral density (BMD) values were more diagnostically accurate than non-size-adjusted values. The greatest odds ratio was estimated volumetric BMD for vertebral fracture.
