Vertebral fractures are one of the most common consequences of osteoporosis. They are usually diagnosed by visual interpretation of lateral radiographs of the lumbar and thoracic spine. Vertebral morphometry, based on measurements of the anterior, middle, and posterior heights of the vertebral bodies from T4 to L4, is a useful adjunct to the visual reading of radiographs. A new generation of dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) scanners offers software for acquiring lateral images of the… CONTINUE READING
