​Bone Density Screening

Bone densitometry is a test that measures bone density and the mineral content of bone in a person's body.

This safe, accurate, and painless test is extremely helpful in diagnosing and evaluating osteoporosis.

During your bone density test, you will need to lie still on a table while the equipment scans two areas: the lumbar spine and hip.
