To assess the role of quantitative ultrasound densitometry on person with osteoporosis fracture. We measure BUA T-score of Os-calis in a sample of 100 persons (Male 54, Female46), aged 45-99 years at Rajindra Hospital, Patiala. We observed that none of the patient in our study had normal BUA T Score measured by quantitative ultrasound densitometry. All patient had BUA T-Score range -5.5 to -1.2, mean with SD -2.60 1.07. Thus quantitative ultrasound densitometry seems to be a good predictor of fracture risks due to osteoporosis. We also observed that in osteoporotic patient with age 45 years or over there was age related decline BUA T. Score. This was higher in women compared with men. We conclude that all patients with fractures due to osteoporosis had poor bone quality. Thus quantitative ultrasound densitometry may be mandatory for a person with osteoporosis facture.
