Research Synthesis: What Is the Diagnostic Performance of Magnetic Resonance Imaging to Discriminate Benign From Malignant Vertebral Compression Fractures? Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
Evidence Based Medicine
Thawait SK et al. – Several specific MRI features using signal intensity characteristics, morphological characteristics, quantitative techniques, and findings at other levels can be useful for distinguishing benign from malignant vertebral compression fractures (VCFs) and can serve as inputs for a prediction model. Observer performance reliability has not been adequately assessed.
