The new 3.1 All-In-One TBS Report is divided into 7 steps. In the next few days, we will show you how easy it is to use the new report in daily clinical routine.
STEP 1 of 7 – TBS spine mapping
Check your patient positioning and the bone mask. The TBS mapping is the local visual display of the TBS values for each pixel of the DXA image. A low TBS value is represented in red; a high TBS value is represented in green and a medium TBS value in yellow. It is intended to check patient positioning and the bone mask
- Why is this important?
- Patient positioning and bone mask outlining are key for an accurate TBS computation, especially for patient monitoring.
- What to do?
- L1-L4 vertebrae are clearly separated at intervertebral spaces.
- Bone edges include all relevant anatomy and exclude the osteophytes.
- Vertebral fractures or artifacts are excluded.
