Bone Density Testing
Bone density testing is the primary way osteoporosis specialists
diagnosis and treat bone loss in patients. Bone loss can start right after menopause; women can lose up to 20 percent of their bone mass in the first five to seven years after menopause. During a bone density test, a technologist calculates the density of your bones using an X-ray scan. This important, painless test can help determine if you are at risk for bone breakage.
