DEXA Pitfall

In the A way the radiographer used orthogonal measurement, he excluded a segment of L4 vertebra which generally has higher bone density (BD), moreover he included the T12 vertebra which also has lower BD  ;    L1-L4 0.903   T -2.4.

In the correct B way he took under consideration the inclination of the L4 vertebra, the new measurement resulted in higher  BD ; L1-L4 0.959  T -1.9.
