The National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF) and the International Society for Clinical Densitometry (ISCD) are meeting together later this week. This will be my 10th attendance at each group. They are both always interesting.
I will be presenting a new research project this year – “Vertebral Compression Deformities in Patients with Normal Bone Mineral Density”.
This is a further study of the 79 patients with Normal BMD by DXA alone, who were changed to Clinical Osteoporosis because of vertebral compression fractures found on VFA from last year’s study of 1259 consecutive patients with first-time VFA at our facility.
I look forward to seeing what else is new this year.
