The study led by researchers from the University of East Anglia and the University of Sheffield screened 12483 women aged 70-85 recruited from 100 GP practices across 7 regions in England. The results suggest that a simple questionnaire based screening, combined with bone mineral density measurements, could help identify those at risk of hip fractures.
