Summary The authors compared the calibration of FRAX tools from Canada, the US (white), UK, Sweden, France, Australia, New Zealand, and China when used to assess fracture risk in 36,730 Canadian women. Their data underscores the importance of applying country-specific FRAX tools that are based upon high-quality national fracture epidemiology.
