Abstract

Justification Criteria for Vertebral Fractures 2012 version was made based on new clinical findings. Major differences in this version compared to the 1996 version are inclusion of the semiquantitative method (SQ), statements to improve considerations during radiographic analysis, and the need for more detailed evaluation by MRI.
