Diagnosis and Tests

Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) is usually suspected in children whose bones break with very little force. A physical examination may show that the whites of their eyes have a blue tint.

A definitive diagnosis may be made on the basis of examination of the person, examining the skeleton by X-rays, excluding other causes of bone fragility and sometimes by genetic tests.
