Corrigendum to “Assessment of Hip Fracture Risk Using Cross-Section Strain Energy Determined by QCT-Based Finite Element Modeling”
In the article titled “Assessment of Hip Fracture Risk Using Cross-Section Strain Energy Determined by QCT-Based Finite Element Modeling” , there was an error regarding the FRAX® tool, which should be clarified as follows:
The article notes: “Fracture Risk Assessment Tool (FRAX) is a tool to evaluate an individual’s fracture probability in the next 10 years, adopted by the WHO in 2008 .” However, the World Health Organization (WHO) did not develop, test or endorse the FRAX® tool or its recommendations . The metabolic bone disease unit at the University of Sheffield that developed FRAX® was a WHO Collaborating Centre from 1991 to 2010, but treatment guidelines must undergo a formal process before they can be endorsed by the WHO.
