Description

There is a need to streamline the process that offers prompt referral and immediate management of patients with VCFs who would benefit from vertebral augmentation procedure for pain relief, followed by treatment of osteoporosis with the goal of preventing another debilitating fracture.

Learning Objectives:

  1. To determine between acute/subacute vertebral compression fractures from chronic vertebral compression fractures using x-ray, MRI, CT and nuclear medicine bone scan
  2. To streamline prompt referral and management of osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures and review treatment of osteoporosis to prevent another fracture
  3. To discuss imaging studies such as DEXA scan and CT to determine bone density to help diagnose osteoporosis
  4. To discuss how imaging studies such as x-ray, CT, MRI and nuclear medicine bone scan help distinguish between osteoporotic vertebral compression fracture from a pathologic fracture secondary to neoplastic process

1.0 X-Ray Credit - Approved
