Bone Densitometry

Information about your bone densitometry procedure.

Bone densitometry is the examination for assessing osteoporosis. 

Osteoporosis results from loss of bone mass, leading to bone weakening and increasing the chance of fracture. 

A bone densitometry scan is a special type of X-ray test used to measure the calcium content of the bone, usually in the lumbar region (the lower back) and the hips.
