What is Osteoporosis?
Osteoporosis is a disease of the bones. Osteoporosis and/or low bone mass may increase fragility of bones and compromise bone strength that may result in a bone fracture(s).
What is a bone densitometry test?
A bone density test is a non-invasive, painless examination that uses low doses of X-Ray to measure the density of bones. There are various types of bone density tests. Central DXA, dual energy x-ray absorptiometry is used at our office. DXA tests may take scans of parts of the body, such as the spine, hip(s) and/or wrist.
