New technologies are dramatically changing our ability to screen for osteoporosis and detect changes in bone health at an earlier stage -- enabling the earlier delivery of treatments.
For example, opportunistic screening enables medical images acquired for other uses -- like CT and digital x-ray -- to be analyzed to detect signs of osteopenia and osteoporosis. This promises to make bone health assessment more convenient and cost-effective for both clinicians and patients.
Other technologies like artificial intelligence are also being applied for osteoporosis screening and analysis. Learn more about them in this webinar.
