Bone Density Testing: Osteoporosis Diagnosis, Prevention and Treatment
Women's Healthcare Associates is committed to offering you the highest quality bone-density services. The tests we perform are considered to be the “gold standard” when it comes to measuring bone density or assessing spine fractures. Our rigorous quality control program and ongoing provider education ensure test accuracy — and the highest level of care for each patient.
All tests are completely non-invasive and pain-free. If your clothing contains no metal, you may not even have to put on an examination gown. You simply lie on a padded table while low-level x-rays scan your bones. The radiation level used is about ten times lower than that of a standard chest x-ray.
If you are interested in learning more about bone density testing, or would like to make an appointment, consult your Women's Healthcare Associates provider. For general information onosteoporosis, visit the National Osteoporosis Foundation website.
