Trabecular bone score (TBS) is a novel texture index that evaluates pixel gray-level variations in lumbar spine dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) images, and is related to bone microarchitecture independent of bone mineral density (BMD).

They used a cross-sectional data collected from participants in an ongoing prospective community-based cohort study from 2009 to 2010.
The findings suggest a link between TBS and diabetic skeletal deterioration.
