Bone Mineral Density Scan (BMD)

A Bone Mineral Density (BMD) test is an easy, reliable test, that measures the density or thickness of your bone using low dose X rays. The scan takes approximately 15 minutes. You will be required to lie still on a table while a scanner passes over your spine and hip.

BMD tests are used to:

  • Diagnosis bone loss and osteoporosis
  • Monitor bone loss
  • Monitor response to therapy for osteoporosis.
  • Along with your associated risk factors, the BMD can help predict your total risk of future bone fractures.
