Medimaps flagship product, TBS iNsight®  v3.0 software, is an advanced application for DXA that evaluates the quality of the trabecular bone microarchitecture, known as TBS: Trabecular Bone Score.

 

TBS is obtained from a routine DXA image, and allows healthcare providers to integrate bone microarchitecture into fracture risk prediction without additional dose or scan time. While standard DXA examination measures bone density it does not reflect bone microarchitecture. One out of two patients who are not classified as osteoporotic after a standard DXA examination (with BMD only) still get bone fractures. TBS adds the microarchitecture dimension into the diagnosis in order to identify patients at high risk of fracture. That is why it is important to assess both bone density and bone microarchitecture.
