Bone Density

Osteoporosis is a severe and as yet incurable disease, the effects of which are a real concern. To combat the progression of the condition, early diagnosis is a necessity. In recent years, pharmaceutical companies have devoted time and money into creating effective and accurate methods of treatment. Bone Mineral Densitometry is a test done to measure a personís bone mineral density (BMD). The measurements are used for the diagnosis of osteoporosis, estimation of the fracture risk and assessment of response to treatment. Our unit employs Digital Flash Beam technology resulting in a multi-site examination that is much faster than commonly used fan or pseudo fan beam acquisition techniques. This shortened procedure time results in enhanced comfort for the patient with lessened image defects due to movement. Excellent image quality results in the desired outcome of qualification of the bone, leading to a progression in the way osteoporosis is diagnosed based on bone solidity. Daytime, evening and Saturday morning appointments are available.
