Can anyone explain osteopenia/osteoporosis criteria for the radius? Is it not the same as for the spine or hips? Radiologist has documented radius measurements that would definitely be considered osteoporosis in another area, but states: Bone density lies in the range expected for age in the right distal radius having increased by comparison. ???
Thanks.
