Dr. Vokes’ investigations focus on two areas. One is to examine the clinical application of non-invasive assessment of bone structure and radiographic texture to the field of osteoporosis. Dr. Vokes is examining how computerized texture analysis of digitized high-resolution images of trabecular bone improves our ability to diagnose bone fragility and follow natural history and/or response to pharmacologic therapy of osteoporosis.
The second area of interest is to describe the clinical features, and search for genetic and molecular defects underlying fragility in patients who have low trauma fractures but do not have osteoporosis by bone mineral density criteria.
