Osteoporosis Update: Keys to Improving Diagnosis and Preventing Fractures

Drs. John Carey and Susan Greenspan share updated methods for diagnosing osteoporosis and reducing fracture risk in our aging population.
  • Overview

    It is estimated that 54 million Americans over the age of 50 are affected by osteoporosis and low-density bone mass, putting them at higher risk for fractures. Additionally, new evidence is emerging that the 30-year downward trend in hip fractures has hit a plateau recently, indicating that the field, as a whole, must take action to aggressively reduce this danger in our aging population.

    Dr. John Carey, President of the International Society for Clinical Densitometry, and Dr. Susan Greenspan, Vice President of the National Osteoporosis Foundation, speak with host Dr. Matt Birnholz about diagnostic and treatment priorities for osteoporosis to help reduce fractures.
