Background: Osteoporosis is characterized by reduced bone mass and a compromised bone microstructure, leading to increased bone fragility and fracture risk. Currently, the gold standard for diagnosis is the bone mineral density (BMD) measurement by DXA. However, approximately half of fragility fractures occurs in the context of normal or slightly decreased BMD values.Protocol: In this cross-sectional study, we performed an artificial intelligence (AI)-ba...
