Osteoporosis Recs Urge Screening for More Women, 29 Aug 2011 [cached]
Also in an e-mail, Murray Favus, MD, director of the bone program at the University of Chicago, said that the lack of a plan for assessing fracture risk in men is a major problem with the guidelines.
"It is time to recognize that men will continue to be neglected until reimbursement for bone-density scans is in place," he wrote, "and a first step is inclusion of management of men in the guideline."

"It's a standard practice, but with busy schedules, complying is not always easy for some professionals," says Dr. Murray Favus, who was director of the Clinical Research Center at the University of Chicago for the last 19 years.
As an example, he describes the process of making patient rounds along with a small team of interns, residents and students.
"Typically, as many as four of us might have patient contact, shifting a person's position in bed so we can examine his or her condition or change a dressing.A sink, soap and paper towels are in or near every room, but the cleaning process slows us down.If four people have to scrub down after seeing 15 patients in the morning, that's 60 handwashings."
Favus says everyone wants to follow policy, but no one wants to slow the team's progress.Not every washing is thorough.
Doctors and staff in the intensive care unit must be even more diligent, he says, pointing out that the sickest people require more frequent monitoring.
Favus sees value in having automatic flushers in washrooms used by patients."It's one less step for a weak patient," he says.

In an email to Reuters Health, Dr. Murray Favus, who directs the bone program at the University of Chicago Medical Center, said the new findings might ease concerns about the drugs.
Only about one in 100,000 people taking bone drugs actually develop osteonecrosis of the jaw, he said, and the atypical fractures linked to the drugs are also very uncommon he said.
"The concern about complications or just not being committed to the medication has led many patients to stop oral bisphosphonate therapy," he said.
