dc.description.abstract The aim of this research was to determine normal bone mineral density (BMD) reference ranges (means and standard deviations) for the lumbar spine, total hip and distal forearm, for Indian women of varying age groups in KwaZulu-Natal. The aim also included a comparison of the study population reference ranges with those provided by the manufacturer in order to evaluate any diagnostic implications. en_US
