The purpose of this illustration is to educate the general public about osteoporosis. Oftentimes, the bone loss that occurs in osteoporotic individuals is not detected during early stages. Thus, it is important to raise awareness of this common bone disease so that preventative measures can be taken. In order to help the public understand the physical manifestations of osteoporosis, clear, effective illustrations support the text.
