The Working Group on Applications of Clinical and Translational Research published their review on the role of bone marrow adipose tissue in osteoporosis in Current Osteoporosis Reports in February 2023 (link)
Purpose of review: This review focuses on the recent findings regarding bone marrow adipose tissue (BMAT) concerning bone health. We summarize the variations in BMAT in relation to age, sex, and skeletal sites, and provide an update on noninvasive imaging techniques to quantify human BMAT. Next, we discuss the role of BMAT in patients with osteoporosis and interventions that affect BMAT.
