Big Data and Bone Fracture Risk

Catalog #STO-159

Explore how “big data” could be used to predict bone fracture risk.

Time To Complete Time to complete: 2-3 forty-minute class periods

A “big data” research study collects information from many individuals and a variety of sources over an extended period of time.  Big data research has the potential to predict, prevent, or treat disease.  Analysis of big data sets may reveal factors associated with increased risks for health problems such as bone fractures.

  • Investigate factors that could be used to predict bone fracture risk.
  • Conduct simulated medical tests, record data, and analyze data.
  • Explore how big data sets may reveal other factors that could be used to understand bone fracture risk.
