Abstract

Osteoporosis must be detected early in order to prevent failures in denture treatment. To this end, tools such as the Posture-P questionnaire and the Quantitative Ultrasound (QUS) are widely used for osteoporosis screening. Posture-P. This study is a diagnostic test that analyzes the sensitivity and specificity of the Posture-P questionnaire towards QUS in assessing the bone density of postmenopausal women. Data was collected through interviews using the Posture-P questionnaire, and bone density was measured using the QUS. The results of this study show that both the sensitivity and specificity of the Posture-P questionnaire towards QUS are quite good, with respective values of 77.23% and 75%. Thus, the Posture-P questionnaire can replace the QUS in osteoporosis screening.
