We currently offer bone densitometry services. We are located within the IHA Associates in Gynecology & Obstetrics - Arbor Park location. Listed below is information about bone densitometry.
Bone densitometry is used most often to diagnose osteoporosis, a condition that often affects women after menopause but may also be found in men. Osteoporosis involves a gradual loss of calcium, causing the bones to become thinner, more fragile and more likely to break. The bone density test can also assess your risk for developing fractures.
Bone densitometry identifies bone loss at the major fracture sites (i.e. femur and spine) in just minutes. Along with the standard sites, they also offer: dual femur measurement to assess the average density of both femurs for confident patient management and total body measures both bone density and body fat assessment. Hence, bone desitometry is an excellent tool to assess weight loss therapies, endocrine/growth disorders, pediatric and patients with secondary osteoporosis.
If you have any questions about the service please contact our office.
