Quantitative vertebral morphometry based on parametric modeling of vertebral bodies in 3D
Osteoporosis International, 08/08/2012
Stern D et al. – The described quantitative vertebral morphometry in 3D is able to efficiently and objectively discriminate between normal and fractured vertebral bodies and identify morphological cases concavity and grades of vertebral body fractures. It may be therefore valuable for diagnosing and predicting vertebral fractures in patients who are at risk of osteoporosis.
