1. Influence of the variation of the operator, patient position and device on the measurement performance of R.E.M.S

Caffarelli, G. Adami, G. Arioli, G. Bianchi, M.L. Brandi, S. Casciaro. L. Cianferotti, D. Ciardo, F. Conversano, D. Gatti, G. Girasole, M. Manfredini, M. Muratore, P. Pisani, E. Quarta, L. Quarta, S. Gonnelli

Highlight:

This study evaluates intra-operator, inter-operator and inter-device repeatability for estimates obtained using REMS technology on more than 200 women; a high precision has been reported for both sites, lumbar spine and proximal femur, as well as a high repeatability.

2. REMS Technology applied to rheumatic diseases

M.D. Tomai Pitinca, C. Caffarelli, S. Gonnelli

Highlight:

The results of this study acknowledge that REMS technology can be considered an added value in examining patients with rheumatologic diseases causing alterations in the spine, which typically reduce the diagnostic sensitivity of DXA.

3. Short-term monitoring of denosumab effect in breast cancer patients receiving Aromatase Inhibitors using REMS technology on lumbar spine

Quarta, D. Ciardo, M. Ciccarese, F. Conversano, M. Di Paola, R. Forcignanò, F.A. Lombardi, M. Muratore, P. Pisani, L. Quarta, S. Casciaro

Highlight:

The results of this study prove the clinical effectiveness of REMS technology for short-term monitoring of patients under therapeutic therapy, a clinical need which is currently unmet by other methods including the gold standard DXA.
