  1. Resource Description
    VFA imaging by DXA is used to assess for the presence of vertebral fractures along the thoracic and lumbar spine (T4-L4). Vertebral fractures are the most common osteoporotic fractures, and yet only 1/3 are clinically diagnosed. Spine fractures are associated with increased morbidity and mortality and an elevated risk of subsequent fractures independent of BMD. <img src="https://researchcores.partners.org/data/wiki_pages/155/VFA_FINAL.JPG" alt="vfa"> <a href="https://researchcores.partners.org/data/wiki_pages/155/VFA_FINAL.pdf">Example of VFA analysis</a>
