Lateral vertebral assessment

An existing compression fracture of the spine due to osteoporosis increases the risk of subsequent fractures, regardless of bone density. The assessment is performed with a single view of the spine using a lower radiation dose from traditional X-rays. Results of this non-invasive test provide a highly useful tool to assess your fracture status and may assist in the management of your health care.
