OBJECTIVE: High quality dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) acquisition, analysis, and reporting demands technical and interpretive excellence. We hypothesized that DXA errors are common and of such magnitude that incorrect clinical decisions might result. In this 2-phase study, we evaluated DXA technical and interpretation error rates in a clinical population and subsequently assessed if implementing an interpretation template reduced errors. METHODS: In phase 1, DXA scans of 345 osteoporosis clinic referrals were reviewed by International Society for Clinical Densitometry-certified technologists (n = 3) and physicians (n = 3)...

Prior studies show vertebral strength from computed tomography-based finite element analysis may be associated with vertebral fracture risk. We found vertebral strength had a strong association with new vertebral fractures, suggesting that vertebral strength measures identify those at risk for vertebral fracture and may be a useful clinical tool. INTRODUCTION: We aimed to determine the association between vertebral strength by quantitative computed tomography (CT)-based finite element analysis (FEA) and incident vertebral fracture (VF)...

BACKGROUND: Gold standard to diagnose osteoporosis is standard dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). CT is a standard diagnostic tool to detect injuries to the pelvic ring. The aim of the study was to collect information on bone density without DXA by determination of Hounsfield units (HU) in CT scans of patients with sacral fractures, to draw conclusions on the prevalence of osteoporosis in patients admitted to the investigating institution. HYPOTHESIS: Is the determination of HU in CT scans a useful method to gain more information about bone density in patients with sacral fractures? PATIENTS AND METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of all patients treated from 2004-2014 with sacral fractures confirmed with a CT scan...

Leonurine hydrochloride (LH) is a synthetic chemical compound derived from leonurine that can be extracted from Leonurus sibiricus and possesses antioxidant, anti-apoptosis, and neuroprotective activities. In previous studies, LH has been demonstrated to attenuate osteoclast activity and prevent bone loss. However, it is unknown whether LH accelerates bone formation and promotes osteogenic differentiation. We systematically examined the effects of LH on ovariectomized-induced osteoporotic mice and the MC3T3-E1 osteoblastic cell line...

High-resolution synchrotron computed tomography (CT) is very helpful in the diagnosis and monitor of chronic diseases including osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is characterized by low bone mass and cortical bone porosity best imaged with CT. Synchrotron CT requires a large number of angular projections to reconstruct images with high resolution for detailed and accurate diagnosis. However, this poses great risks and challenges for serial in-vivo human and animal imaging due to a large amount of X-ray radiation dose required that can damage living specimens...

The high incidence of osteoporosis and related fractures demands for the use and development of methods capable of detecting changes in bone mechanical properties. The most common clinical and laboratory methods used to detect changes in bone mechanical properties, such as stiffness, strength, or flexural rigidity, include: mechanical testing, medical imaging, medical image-based analytical calculations, and medical image-based finite element analysis. However, the innate complexity of bone makes validation of the results from each method difficult...
