Trabecular Bone Score: A Noninvasive Analytical Method Based Upon the DXA Image

The trabecular bone score (TBS) is a gray‐level textural metric that can be extracted from the two‐dimensional lumbar spine dual‐energy X‐ray absorptiometry (DXA) image.

TBS is related to bone microarchitecture and provides skeletal information that is not captured from the standard bone mineral density (BMD) measurement.

Based on these data, lumbar spine TBS holds promise as an emerging technology that could well become a valuable clinical tool in the diagnosis of osteoporosis and in fracture risk assessment.
