The aim of this clinical study using Bone UltraSonic Scanner (BUSS) is to obtain clinical data which will help to optimize the BUSS examination procedure and its diagnostic algorithms for assessment of bone conditions.
||Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Retrospective
||Phase I Study of Portable Bone Ultrasonometer for Osteoporosis Assessment
Primary Outcome Measures:
- To obtain clinical data which will help to optimize the BUSS examination procedure and its diagnostic algorithms for assessment of bone conditions. [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
| Study Start Date:
| Study Completion Date:
| Primary Completion Date:
||January 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
The specific aims of this clinical study are:
- To optimize the data collection technique and establish an examination procedure;
- To collect data necessary for assessing the performance of BUSS sensors;
- To evaluate the probe ergonomic design and participant tolerance to probe application;
- To assess the clinical suitability of the software interface in data collection;
- To adjust the BUSS diagnostic algorithms using dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) data as a "gold" standard in osteoporosis detection and characterization;
- To evaluate BUSS performance including ease of use and consistency.
