The Trabecular Bone Score is a measurement of bone structure and quality obtained through special software now available during the same scan that measures bone density. No additional scanning, imaging, radiation, or time is needed for a TBS.
When TBS is combined with bone density testing, more information about your bone health is obtained. BMD (Bone Mineral Density) score is related to bone mass only. The TBS score is a better predictor of fracture risk than the BMD scores alone. TBS can help recognize these people and allow for more personalized care to prevent fractures.
Insurance coverage varies depending on the patient’s carrier and insurance plan.
