In order to assess a CT density value, below which the risk of a vertebral compression fracture exists, 88 patients of table 9–1 were divided into four classes according to the X-ray appearance on lateral thoracic and lumbar spine radiographs. Four different symbolic configurations were employed representing each indidivual patient (table 12–1).
