Bone Density in Montgomery, Alabama ()

Bone density scans are used to determine the strength of the bones and the probability of fractures in people who are at risk for osteoporosis. A bone density scan is a very simple, noninvasive procedure that takes only a few minutes to perform.

With the utilization of this scan, bone mineral loss can be detected and in most cases reversed. If you have a complete body scan performed a bone density scan is included.

A bone density scan provides a volumetric measure of your bone density. It distinguished between the exterior cortical bone and the interior trabecular bone. The most important measurement is that of the trabecular bone in the spine. This measurement is indicative of the overall bone health. By maintaining the primary focus on the trabecular compartment, a bone density scan takes the most precise pictures of your bone.
