Delmas Hopital Edouard Herriot, Place d’Arsonval, Pavillion F, 69347 Lyon, Cedex 03, France Recognizing and reporting osteoporotic vertebral fractures Abstract Vertebral fractures are the hallmark of osteoporosis, and occur with a higher incidence earlier in life than any other type of osteoporotic fractures. It has been shown that both symptomatic and asymptomatic vertebral fractures are associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Morbidity associated with these fractures includes decreased physical function and social isolation, which have a significant impact on the patient’s overall quality of life.

These sources of falsepositive or false-negative interpretation are especially common when parallax problems due to radiographic technique or patient positioning are encountered. Intraobserver variability for a semi-quantitative approach depends on experience and training. The same however, is true for digitizing techniques: an experienced observer is more consistent in the placement of the points for digitization. A number of comparative studies have evaluated the relative performance of the quantitative morphometric and the semiquantitative methods and moderate correlations were found in most of them [1, 17, 29, 52].

Some of these visual characteristics are not captured by the six-digitization points used in quantitative techniques; this can cause some deformities to remain undetected. For example, only an experienced observer can make the subtle distinctions between a fractured endplate and wedge shaped appearance caused by the remodeling of the vertebral bodies in degenerative disc disease (Fig. 3). This is often interpreted as a wedge fracture in quantitative studies. In the absence of distinct characteristics of a fracture, however, a reader using a visual approach could rather arbitrarily consider a mild wedge deformity normal, anomalous, or fractured; in such a case, a well-defined quantitative criterion could be useful.
