Abstract

Background Spinal cord injury (SCI) is a complex cause of rapid low bone mass that easily predisposes the affected individuals to osteoporosis-induced fractures. Several studies have investigated osteoporosis pathophysiology in SCI; however, those associated with its diagnosis in SCI are limited. Additionally, errors in osteoporosis diagnosis and its prevalence vary based on the bone mineral density (BMD) reference values (BMDRV), and no studies have reported BMDRV...
