Highlight:

REMS technology allowed to monitor bone health throughout pregnancy, from the first to the third gestational trimester. REMS revealed a significant reduction in bone mass, of more than 2%, at the femoral site even from the first trimester of gestation.

This was demonstrated by a study conducted at the University Hospital of Parma, by longitudinally assessing the changes in the bone health status of a cohort of 65 pregnant women from the eleventh week of gestation. The patients underwent two femoral REMS scans, at first and third trimester of the pregnancy, respectively.

The study highlights that REMS ultrasound technology is an important tool for assessing and monitoring BMD, even during pregnancy, and opens new perspectives for the evaluation of the impact of drug treatment on maternal bone mass.
