The combination of finite element modeling, biomechanics, and clinical computed tomography (CT) scanning—biomechanical CT (BCT)—is a powerful research technique for noninvasive assessment of whole‐bone strength and is now being used in clinical research studies. Well supported by cadaver studies, the technique is providing substantial new insight into drug treatment effects, can show treatment effects earlier than dual‐energy X‐ray absorptiometry (DXA), and has shown greater sensitivity than… Expand

Observational Clinical Trial
This study will evaluate: 1) whether computed tomography (CT) scanning is better than regular x-rays for measuring changes in the stiffness, or fusion, of the spine in patients with… Expand
