What is Trabecular Bone Score (TBS)?

Trabecular Bone Score or TBS provides information about the quality of bone structure in the spine bone. This information complements bone mineral density measurement, and can be helpful to clinicians in determining fracture risk and discussing lifestyle management or treatment options with patients. It is conveniently measured during a standard bone density test. We are pleased to announce that our program, the Osteoporosis Program at University Health Network, has recently installed innovative software to measure TBS in our clinic patients.
