DEXA challenge: Find the errors

It seems that at least one in 10 or maybe one in 20 DEXA scan reports that I read contain some typographical error regarding the reporting of T scores or BMD. It is important to recognize, because I have seen patients' therapy changed/started/stopped by referring physicians based on erroneous results that were missed. See if you can spot the errors here. I have called the radiologists to confirm the errors. There were two that I found.
