The utility of vertebral fracture assessment (VFA) by DXA to detect prevalent vertebral fracture in a multicenter setting was investigated by comparison to conventional radiography. While limited by lower image quality, overall performance of VFA was good but had a tendency to miss mild prevalent fractures. In osteoporosis clinical trials standardized spine radiographs are used to detect vertebral fractures as a study endpoint. Lateral spine imaging with dual X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) scanners… CONTINUE READING
