The September article, “If It’s Broken, Fix It,” mistakenly stated: “The FRAX risk calculator requires the femoral neck bone mineral density score from a dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) scan to calculate risk estimates. If a patient has not had a DXA scan, then this tool cannot be used.” However, the FRAX score can actually be calculated with or without the bone mineral density, corrected above. We regret the error.
