A comparative study of using non-hip bone density inputs with FRAX®.
Journal article, 2012

Use of lumbar spine T-score or minimum T-score as a bone mineral density (BMD) input to the FRAX® algorithm led to miscalibration compared with the recommended femoral neck input. Use of a weighted mean between the lumbar spine and femoral neck T-scores was found to provide an arithmetically equivalent result to a previously described offset adjustment.
