Osteoporosis affects an estimated 75 million people in Europe, USA and Japan.
1 in 3 women over 50 will experience osteoporotic fractures, as will 1 in 5 men.
30-50% of women and 15-30% of men will suffer a fracture related to osteoporosis in their lifetime.
85% of wrist fractures occur in women (6) .
Nearly 75% of hip, spine and distal forearm fractures occur among patients 65 years old or over.
Metriscan is a pre-screening device. In many countries there is a limited availability of DEXA units. A DEXA is a whole body X-ray device which is available is some bigger hospitals. The DEXA is looking atthe T-score in the hip, spine and wrist. Normally there are waiting lists for those machines (because of limited availablity and high investment) . It appears that approximately 80% of the people who get a DEXA examination have a negative result and 20% have some level of Osteoporosis.
