Bone Mineral Density

Bone Mineral Density (BMD) testing, also referred to as a DEXA (or dual energy x-ray absorptiometry), is an x-ray procedure that measures the density of your bones. As we age, our bones naturally become thinner, less dense and more prone to injury. Early detection of the loss of bone mass is critical, as loss can often happen without any signs or symptoms until a fracture (break) of the bone occurs.
The results of BMD testing will help your doctor to determine the strength of your bones. A BMD test diagnoses osteoporosis (reduction in density of bone), shows the effectiveness of treatment for osteoporosis, and assesses the risk of developing fractures. The results are graphed and compared to a population at peak bone mass (young normal), as well a population that is matched to your age and gender.

Ultrasound testing involves exposing the body to high frequency sound waves and using these waves to produce images.  Ultrasound testing, or sonography as it is known, is a useful diagnostic tool for your doctor to obtain more information about the structure and appearance of your internal body organs and also to detect any abnormalities that might be present.  Ultrasound does not use ionizing radiation and is generally considered to be a safe procedure with no known side effects.
