Exams

A bone density examination is the easiest and simplest way to assess for the presence of osteoporosis. The examination typically lasts about 10 minutes, and there is no associated discomfort.

Osteoporosis is a condition that results from low levels of calcium in the bones (low bone density). The bones are consequently more fragile and fracture more easily and frequently than normal bones. Typically, the spine and hips are evaluated but, on occasion the forearms might be as well.

The process is quick and painless and can be done with the patient fully-clothed during the examination.

Why Might I Need a Bone Density Scan?

As mentioned above, you’ll need a bone density scan to determine if you have, or are at risk of developing osteoporosis. Most osteoporosis occurs in postmenopausal females. However, other reasons doctors may require a bone density scan include:

 

  • If you have lost height.
  • If you are taking certain drugs.
  • If you have fractured a bone.
  • If you are suspected of having hormonal abnormalities.
  • If you have recently received an organ transplant.
