Abstract

Osteoporosis is a common condition and an important cause of disability. For this reason, early detection of the disease and patients at higher risk of bone fractures is compulsory. In the recent years, conventional quantitative methods have been spreading for the diagnosis of osteoporosis; moreover, new improvements in computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have been made in this feld and imaging fndings may correlate to the morphological and structural changes within the bone.
