EWBC adds Trabecular Bone Score (TBS) with Bone Density Testing
TBS is a measurement of bone microarchitecture used to assess the quality of trabecular bone, which is the type of bone found in the spine and hip. It is obtained from the DXA scan and provides a quantitative assessment of the bone structure that is independent of bone density.
