Artificial intelligence detects fractures on CT images for osteoporosis diagnostics

The bone density of many people decreases as they get older. This process, which is known as osteoporosis, often goes unnoticed, even if there are fractures to the vertebral bodies. These fractures could be detected by means of X-rays or computed tomography (CT), but this does not always occur. For example, because the CT is done for a different reason, a vertebral fracture can be overlooked in the stress of everyday life in the clinic.
