T-score discordance is observed when the difference between the hip and spine are sufficient to result in the two measurement sites falling into two different diagnoses as defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) classification system. This article examines the prevalence of patterns of T-score discordance between the total hip and PA L1-L4 total spine sites in 5051 female patients undergoing dual X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) bone density testing at a community-based outpatient osteoporosis… CONTINUE READING
