SummaryIntra-and inter-reader reliability of semi-automated quantitative vertebral morphometry measurements was determined using lateral computed tomography (CT) scout views. The method requires less time than conventional morphometry. Reliability was excellent for vertebral height measurements, good for height ratios, and comparable to semi-quantitative grading by radiologists for identification of vertebral fractures.IntroductionUnderdiagnosis and undertreatment of vertebral fracture (VFx) is… CONTINUE READING
