The effects of osteoporosis in a 74 year old female, shown through serial 3D CT scans
- December 2014, she had sustained no vertebral fractures and her spine was ‘perfect’
- Unknown to her doctors, her spine bone density was in the lowest 2.5% of women her age
- By April 2015 (halfway through the video) her vertebrae had fractured, and she was suffering agonising pain
Further insights into the effects of multiple vertebral fractures can be found in the “Life with Osteoporosis” video by the NOS.
