Osteoporotic vertebral fractures are often under reported by radiologists, particularly non-musculoskeletal radiologists.

Researchers from the United Kingdom performed a retrospective cohort study to investigate the reporting and follow-up of vertebral fragility fractures (VFFs) by radiologists at their facility. Patients with osteoporotic VFFs are at increased risk of future fractures, including hip fractures.
