Used in the field of osteoporosis, TBS iNsight™ (Osteo) is an advanced imaging software application for bone densitometers (DXA). It provides doctors with a simple solution to better predict a patient’s risk for bone fracture; to fine-tune therapy decision; and to improve patient management.
How it works
Easily installed on a DXA machine, this software application uses the DXA 2-D images produced during a regular spine Bone Mineral Density (BMD) scan to seamlessly compute a patient’s Trabecular Bone Score within seconds. This result provides precious information as to the patient’s trabecular bone microarchitecture and is displayed in a “TBS report”, automatically edited and easy to interpret by practitioners.
Two patients with the same trabecular and/or cortical bone density (same BMD values) can have a different underlying bone microarchitecture (different TBS scores).
They will not have the same fracture risk:

TBS has gained international recognition with 500 peer-reviewed publications. It has been incorporated in several international and national guidelines and recommendations. With this positive track record, TBS has become the gold standard for bone microarchitecture assessment in daily clinical routine.
