Bone Density

A bone density test is used to detect osteoporosis, a weakening of the bones that might lead to fractures of the spine, hip or wrist. A bone density measurement determines your bone mineral density (BMD) for the area measured and compares that result with the average BMD of young adults of your sex and race at their peak BMD.

 

This information will help your doctor determine if you need to take certain steps to protect your bone health. Early detection is the best way to protect you from the possible damaging effects of osteoporosis.

 

Bone density measurement is simple, safe, noninvasive and painless - you don't even need to undress for the procedure, which requires no special preparation, medication or injection.
