The National Osteoporosis Guideline Group (NOGG) have just released updated guidelines that should see more people aged 70 and over receiving intervention to lower their future fracture risk.
We’re delighted and excited to be part of the team delivering on a new project, STOpFrac, to identify vertebral fragility fractures. Funded by the National Institute for Health Research Invention for Innovation programme, and in partnership with the University of Manchester, Central Manchester Foundation Trust and the National Osteoporosis Society, the project will develop a fully automated computer system, which can be used to analyse medical images containing the spine and accurately identify any vertebral fractures.
We’re pleased to announce that our CQC registration application for our ASPIRE™ vertebral fracture case finding service has been successful. ASPIRE™ will help you find many previously undiagnosed vertebral fragility fracture patients who require management to lower their future fracture risk. Visit our ASPIRE™ product page for more information and to request a no-cost service pilot to demonstrate how effective the service will be in your hospital.
