BACKGROUND A set of nomograms based on the Dubbo Osteoporosis Epidemiology Study predicts the five- and ten-year absolute risk of fracture using age, bone mineral density and history of falls and low-trauma fracture. We assessed the discrimination and calibration of these nomograms among participants in the Canadian Multicentre Osteoporosis Study. METHODS We included participants aged 55-95 years for whom bone mineral density measurement data and at least one year of follow-up data were… CONTINUE READING
