Develop and Validate Ultrasonic Device for Osteoporotic Fracture Risk Assessment

2014-08-27 03:13:41 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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.

Description

One of several studies to develop and clinically validate a novel ultrasonographic device, BUSS, for the assessment of osteoporosis and fracture risk.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Reduction of bone mass without alteration in the composition of bone, leading to fractures. Primary osteoporosis can be of two major types: postmenopausal osteoporosis (OSTEOPOROSIS, POSTMENOPAUSAL) and age-related or senile osteoporosis.

A nonhormonal medication for the treatment of postmenopausal osteoporosis in women. This drug builds healthy bone, restoring some of the bone loss as a result of osteoporosis.

The mineral component of bones and teeth; it has been used therapeutically as a prosthetic aid and in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis.

Breaks in bones resulting from low bone mass and microarchitectural deterioration characteristic of OSTEOPOROSIS.

An aminobisphosphonate derivative of etidronic acid and CALCIUM CHANNEL BLOCKER that inhibits BONE RESORPTION and is used for the treatment of OSTEOPOROSIS.
