Decrease bone marrow perfusion as reflected by lower peak enhancement ratio (PER) value in dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI (DCE-MRI) can independently predict the presence of intraosseous cleft in patients with osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures.DCE-MRI can help distinguish the more frail patients after VCF suitable for more tailored anti-osteoporotic therapy and can also identify delicate osteoporotic patients for advance treatment before an injury can occur.
