Study Finds DEXA Under-Identifies Low BMD, Osteopedia and Osteoporosis in At-Risk Populations

Jan. 12, 2021

A team led by Orthopedic surgeons Stephen J. Incavo, MD and Terry A. Clyburn, MD examined bone mineral density (BMD) measurements made by dual-energy-xray-absorptiometry (DEXA) taken from 100 patients who previously underwent single total-knee arthroplasty (TKA) to determine if automated software-based artifact detection (ASAD) adequately removes implant artifact from the DXA image before analysis and if potential inaccuracies could be overcome through manual artifact correction (MAC).
