Table 4 TBT on radiographs in KOA: what is already known

From: Trabecular bone texture analysis of conventional radiographs in the assessment of knee osteoarthritis: review and viewpoint

N° What is already known
1 TBT changes constitute one of the integral features of OA initiation and progression
2 TBT phenotype of patients with progressive OA is associated with apparent thickening of horizontal trabeculae and thinning of vertical trabeculae
3 TBT parameters evaluated from 2D radiographs reflect the subchondral trabecular bone 3D microarchitecture assessed by CT
4 Using TBT parameters in OA trials does not require supplementary methods for cross-calibration of devices at different clinical centers in addition to the standardized radiographic data acquisition procedures already performed in phase III trials
