About this book

Osteoporosis is a serious problem worldwide, and its significance is continuing to increase as the world population grows and ages. Osteoporosis and Bone Densitometry Measurements provides a comprehensive review of the latest research on this potentially devastating condition. The book encompasses prevention, diagnosis, and therapy, providing state of the art information on each aspect. A wide range of topics are discussed, including differentiation between acute and chronic, benign and malignant vertebral fractures; the value of the WHO FRAX tool in patient evaluation; the roles of dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry, quantitative computed tomography, quantitative ultrasound, and high-resolution imaging; and the use of kyphoplasty and vertebroplasty to treat vertebral compression fractures. All chapters are written by acknowledged experts in the field.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This is a beautifully put together book that covers all of the most important aspects of bone densitometry. Each chapter examines an aspect of osteoporosis in detail and in an easy to read format. The illustrations used throughout are good quality and reflect their intention. Each chapter can be read as a standalone unit which makes the book very versatile. … Overall this is a very convenient text as it brings together all aspects of osteoporosis, not just measuring bone density.” (Angela Wood, RAD Magazine, January, 2014)
