Primary Outcome Measures:
  • BUSS data will be able to discriminate between postmenopausal women with osteoporosis compared with no osteoporosis defined by DXA measurements. [ Time Frame: 1 year ]

Enrollment: 130
Study Start Date: September 2011
Study Completion Date: May 2013
Primary Completion Date: May 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:
Study will conduct measurements in a group of postmenopausal women and use their DXA examination data as a control. BUSS data will be able to discriminate between postmenopausal women with osteoporosis compared with no osteoporosis defined by DXA measurements.
