The Purpose of current study is that Osteoporosis is a systemic disorder characterized by low bone mass leading to fractures reported commonly in females after menopause. The investigations for osteoporosis most commonly used DEXA are very costly and not easily available. Few studies have proposed the use of orthopantomogram as a diagnostic marker for osteoporosis as it is simple, quick, easy, inexpensive, non-invasive and widely used. Thus the present study has undertaken to assess the… CONTINUE READING
