BACKGROUND Bone density measurement with dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry is widely used for fracture risk assessment. Discordance between measurement sites is common, but it is unclear how this affects fracture prediction. METHODS We performed a historical cohort study among 16 505 women 50 years or older at the time of baseline dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry of the spine and hip (mean +/- SD observation period, 3.2 +/- 1.5 years). The study population was drawn from a database that… CONTINUE READING
