PROSPECT: Decision Support for Osteoporosis Screening
The PROSPECT tool has been developed by Monash University to assist health care practitioners in evaluating which of their female patients aged 70 and over need a DEXA and a plain X-ray.
These tests together help determine the presence of osteoporosis and vertebral fracture.
The tool uses three clinical risk factors for this assessment; BMI, Rib-Pelvis Distance Test and use of oestrogen.
