Performance of HR-pQCT, DXA, and FRAX in the discrimination of asymptomatic vertebral fracture in postmenopausal Chinese women
ConclusionTb.vBMD at the radius and SMI at the tibia provided by HR-pQCT can discriminate asymptomatic VF independent of hip aBMD and FRAXBMD by DXA in postmenopausal women.

In conclusion, the combined use of LF-NMR and micro- CT provides a valuable tool for characterizing the morphology of trabecular bone and may offer the possibility for a new approach to the study and modeling of bone mechanics in the context of aging and disease.PMID:34837800 | DOI:10.1016/j.jmbbm.2021.104933
ConclusionPrior fracture was associated with parameters at both the radius and tibia. This study highlights key pQCT parameters that may aid in the prediction of fracture risk.
CONCLUSION: Due to the special challenges of correctly detecting fragility fractures and being able to quickly initiate adequate therapy, good cooperation between radiologists and trauma surgeons is necessary.PMID:34767032 | DOI:10.1007/s00117-021-00928-x
ConclusionsWhile evidence is limited, studies suggest that ESIs may cause bone loss, particularly those investigating volumetric BMD. Larger doses appear to confer greater risk. Further prospective studies are needed to investigate the relationship between ESI and fracture risk. Better understanding of the skeletal consequences of ESIs will help foster strategies to prevent bone loss in the growing population of patients receiving this treatment.
