Osteoporosis is a bone disease associated with decrease in the bone mineral density leading to a high risk of fractures. A bone density scan should be part of the medical evaluation for all menopausal women and those at high risk.
A bone density scan by Dual Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry (DEXA) helps show actual bone density and provides quick results. The scan screens and recognizes the early degradation of bone mass and can also help evaluation the favorable outcome of treatment for osteoporosis sufferers.
