    Choroidal Thickness in Relation to Bone Mineral Density with Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography

    Purpose . To assess whether bone mineral density, indicated by the lumbar X-ray scan, is related to changes in choroid thickness in normal subjects. Methods . This study included 355 patients with decreased bone mineral density and 355 age- and sex-matched healthy subjects. Lumbar BMD was measured by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). Choroidal thickness was measured using swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT). Blood pressure (BP), cholesterol, triglyceride (TG), high-density lipoprotein (HDL), and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) were recorded on the same day. Results . There was a significant difference in average choroidal thickness between low BMD subjects and normal subjects . The BP, cholesterol, triglyceride ...
