Study to demonstrate that the Bone UltraSonic Scanner (BUSS) can aid in detection of osteoporosis and predict prevalent osteoporotic fractures. Measurements derived from the BUSS parameters will be able to discriminate between postmenopausal women with osteoporotic fractures when compared to matched controls without history of osteoporotic fracture.
One of several studies to develop and clinically validate a novel ultrasonographic device, BUSS, for the assessment of osteoporosis and fracture risk.
