Healthy Tips : A bone-density test can help your doctor decide if you have osteoporosis or are at risk of the disease.
The test measures the quantity of bone in your spine, hip and other parts of your bones.
The National Osteoporosis institution says a bone-density test may help:
- Your doctor diagnoses osteoporosis or a weakness in the bones. This can give you and your doctor new information after you have already broken a bone, or help you to avoid a future splinter.
- Check the improvement or advance of your bone density.
- Check the value of osteoporosis medication.
