Electrical impedance spectroscopy: tool for bone health diagnosis?

Title : Electrical impedance spectroscopy: tool for bone health diagnosis?


There is currently only one technique that has been used routinely to screen for osteoporosis, the Dual Energy x ray absorptiometry (DEXA) test. DEXA test attempts to predict bone risk fracture based on bone mineral density. Bone density is not the best predictor of future fracture. Micro architecture is another important fracture risk parameter which if analyzed along with the DEXA scanning can predict more accurately. Few of the findings of our lab showed correlation between dielectric parameters and bone microarchitecture. We report here that the results from the initial studies are promising but significant barriers would have to be overcome, before electric impedance analyzer could become a part of routine osteoporosis screening.
