Introduction: GH deficiency (GHD) is associated with reduced bone mineral density (BMD) and treatment leads to its increase. BMD, a quantitative bone parameter, doesnÂ’t bring whole information about bone status. Nowadays, bone quality shows as main determinant of bone strength, fracture prediction and treatment effect monitoring. A method to assess bone quality through the grey-level texture analysis from lumbar spine DXA scan is trabecular bone score (TBS).<p class="...
