Aims and objectives: Osteoporosis (OP) causes more than 8.9 million fractures annually worldwide with more than 2 million fragility fractures occurring in the United States each year (estimated $19 billion in health care). Of all OP fractures, Hip fractures are the most serious, resulting in hospitalization, and incre[...]

Methods and materials: Non-randomized retrospective study of patients diagnosed with low velocity hip fractures from conventional radiographs, CT scan or MRI utilizing (RIS/PACS) images at Hamad General Hospital, Doha, Qatar from January 2016 to June 2016. Inclusion criteria: Male patients 65 years old or above and Fema[...]

Results: 95 patients met inclusion criteria for the study and would have satisfied ACR appropriateness criteria for DEXA imaging. Age, gender and nationality distribution: 32 (34%) Male. 70 - 93 yrs (mean 75yr) 63 (66%) Female. 65 - 97 yrs old (mean 75yr). 64 (67%) were local Qatari Nationals and 31 (33%) [...]
