  Purpose

Study to demonstrate that the Bone UltraSonic Scanner (BUSS) can aid in detection of osteoporosis and predict prevalent osteoporotic fractures. Measurements derived from the BUSS parameters will be able to discriminate between postmenopausal women with osteoporotic fractures when compared to matched controls without history of osteoporotic fracture.

Groups/Cohorts
With osteoporotic fracture
Approximately 100 postmenopausal women that have been enrolled in a population-based case-control study that have experienced a clinically-diagnosed fracture of thoracolumbar spine or distal forearm due to minimal or moderate trauma based on review on their inpatient and outpatient medical records will be enrolled.
Without osteoporotic fracture
Approximately 100 control women will have no history of a prior spine, hip, or wrist fracture.

Detailed Description:

One of several studies to develop and clinically validate a novel ultrasonographic device, BUSS, for the assessment of osteoporosis and fracture risk.
