10-Year Fracture Risk Calculator
We are pleased to announce that Dr. Bruce Ettinger, has developed a web-based tool that allows you to determine absolute fracture risk. Use of the tool is free of charge.
It takes about a minute to enter age, bone mineral density (BMD), height and weight, and to click (yes/no) on seven other risk factors. The model immediately calculates 10-year fracture risks and shows this in an easy to understand graph that can be printed, saved, and used for patient counseling.
You can access the calculator at http://riskcalculator.fore.org.
Development of the tool was made possible through an unrestricted grant from Procter & Gamble Pharmaceuticals.
