Comparison of Proportion of Osteoporosis based on between Spine and Femur T- Scores to know the Prevalence of Regional Osteoporosis in Patients

Author: M. REDDY, M.K. VETRI KUMAR
Abstract: An osteoporotic person is at augmented risk of developing fragility fractures. The clinical consequences of the osteoporosis induced fragility fractures can be enormous. Apart from leading to temporary or permanent physical disability, they put the person and family involved under huge psychological stress. The direct economic consequences due health care costs and the indirect economic consequences due to loss of wage and caregiver time can be a huge financial burden on the family. Osteoporosis associated fractures are can result in disability substantial pain, suffering, and possibly even death of the exaggerated persons. Asymptomatic nature of osteoporosis in its early stages makes it one of the most under diagnosed clinical conditions and a significant proportion of patients directly present with fragility fractures. Considering the clinical implications of an early diagnosis of regional osteoporosis and resulting positive impact on prevention of osteoporotic fractures, there is an urgent need to conduct studies on the subject. This research work proposes to measure the occurrence of osteoporosis and osteopenia as assessed by bone inanimate density using Dual-energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DEXA) and to associate the occurrence of osteopenia and osteoporosis at lumbar vertebrae and hip with a view to identifying site-specific osteoporosis and this work focuses the comparison of proportion of osteoporosis based on between spine and femur t-scores to know the prevalence of regional osteoporosis in patients.
