What is Bone Mineral Densitometry?
Bone Mineral Densitometry (BMD) scan is a painless, non-invasive procedure that evaluates a person’s risk of sustaining a bone fracture and helps to detect osteoporosis.
Why do you need Bone Mineral Densitometry?
The result from the Bone Mineral Densitometry test is reviewed by our doctor who will discuss potential changes to lifestyle and treatments with the patient. The elderly or those over 65 years of age are especially encouraged to consult their doctor for a BMD scan.
How does the test work?
The Bone Mineral Densitometry test uses X-rays to estimate bone density and thickness, measuring how much calcium and minerals are in a part of the bones.
