Stronger Bones, Stronger You!
After age 35, bone mineral density decreases and the architecture of your bones can deteriorate. A heavy reduction in calcium, minerals, and density of the bone is an indicator of fragility or Osteoporosis. A bone density test will determine the weight of calcium and mineral in an area of bone. The thinner the bone, the more likely it will fracture or break. Modern bone density screening can be conducted prior to breaks or injury. Commonly tested areas of bone include the spine, hips and forearms.
At Third Space Medical, the bone density test procedure is noninvasive with most patients remaining fully clothed during the procedure. The test is recommended for those noticing a loss of height, drop in hormone levels, frequent bone fractures, or those taking long-term steroid medications.
