AbstractThis study investigated the prevalence of radiographic vertebral fractures using Genant's semiquantitative (SQ) scoring system in elderly Chinese men (n = 2,000; mean age, 72.4 years) and women (n = 2,000; mean age, 72.6 years). Vertebral deformities had similar prevalence in elderly men (14.9 %) and women (16.5 %). Majority of the deformities in men were mild (9.9 %, grade = 1). The prevalence of vertebral fractures (grade a parts per thousand yenaEuro parts per thousand 2) was 5.0 % among men and 12.1 % among women.
