Our Services Bone Density Testing

Bone density testing can help determine if you have osteoporosis—a disorder characterized by bones that are more fragile and more likely to break. In the past, osteoporosis would be suspected only after you broke a bone. By that time, your bones could be quite weak. This test enhances the accuracy of calculating your risk of breaking bones by using X-rays to measure how many grams of calcium and other bone minerals are packed into a segment of bone. The bones that are most commonly tested are in the spine, hip and sometimes the forearm.

EBO MD uses bone density testing to:

  • Identity decreases in bone density before you break a bone
  • Determine your risk of broken bones
  • Confirm a diagnosis of osteoporosis or osteopenia
  • Monitor osteoporosis treatment

The higher your bone mineral content, the more dense your bones are. The denser your bones, the stronger they generally are and the less likely they are to break. These tests differ from bone scans, which require an injection beforehand. Bone scans are usually used to detect fractures, cancer, infections and other abnormalities in the bone.

Although this disorder is more common in older women, men can also develop osteoporosis, Regardless of your sex or age, your doctor may recommend a bone density test if you’ve lost height, fractured a bone, received a transplant or had a drop in hormone levels.

Diagnostic testing, such as bone density tests, gathers information critical to correct diagnosis and the monitoring of conditions that can drastically affect your life. At EBO MD, if we can do it in-house, your membership covers the cost. Any tests that must be sent out will receive the very best wholesale prices that we can negotiate for you.
