Previous studies have demonstrated close associations between QUS parameters and osteoporotic status. However, due to the ambiguities in assessing accuracy of QUS and the moderate correlation of DXA and QUS results, currently there is no agreement on how results of QUS devices should be interpreted in order to diagnose osteoporosis. However, I could recommend for clinical application that QUS should be used as the predictor of the risk of osteoporotic fractures. Good portability and low cost of QUS technique might make QUS an attractive technology for assessing risk of fractures in large populations.
