Summary of "A new corrective model to evaluate TBS in obese post-menopausal women: a cross-sectional study."

The relationship between post-menopausal osteoporosis and obesity has been mainly investigated using bone mineral density (BMD) as marker of bone health. Since BMD does not reflect bone microarchitecture, another analytical tool, the Trabecular Bone Score (TBS), has been recently developed for this purpose. In this study, we intended to investigate the validity of TBS as marker of bone quality in obese post-menopausal women.
