Fracture Discrimination by Combined Bone Mineral Density (BMD) and Microarchitectural Texture Analysis

Abstract

The use of bone mineral density (BMD) for fracture discrimination may be improved by considering bone microarchitecture. Texture parameters such as trabecular bone score (TBS) or mean Hurst parameter (H) could help to find women who are at high risk of fracture in the non-osteoporotic group. The purpose of this study was to combine BMD and… (More)
