FRAX™ Adjusted for TBS

Integrate TBS directly into your patients’ FRAX™ score and enhance your osteoporosis patient management outcomes.

Rationale

Intensive amount of published data regarding TBS predictability of fracture has led the Sheffield University FRAX™ Group to explore TBS interaction with FRAX™ in order to provide a new model for TBS clinical application. Observations from the FRAX™ Group are the following – based on TBS literature review and on population-based meta-analysis study1 :

  1. TBS significantly and consistently predicts:
    • vertebral and non-vertebral fracture;
    • death;
  2. These observations are valid in both women and men;
  3. Thus, independently from:
    • BMD;
    • Clinical risk factors;
    • FRAX™.

FRAX™ Group concluded that TBS can be used in risk assessment and help improve the prediction of risk of fracture and risk of death. This raises the question of the clinical application of TBS and how to easily integrate it into the existing osteoporosis management workflow.
