Approximately four million osteoporotic bone fractures cost the European health system more than 30 billion Euro per year. This figure could double by 2050. After the first fracture, the chances of having another one increase by 86 %. 
With current technology we can predict osteoporotic fractures with an accuracy of 60-70 % or less (tossing a coin would give 50 %).
