In this article, the author discusses the 2010 guidelines for the diagnosis of osteoporosis in Canada. He mentions that the guidelines include information of the 2010 version of the Canadian Association of Radiologist and Osteoporosis Canada tool (CAROC). He states that the guidelines recommend to consider the 20% or greater probability of a 10-year osteoporotic fracture as high risk and 10% as low risk. He adds that the 2002 guidelines set limits on treatments based on bone mineral density.
