HOW DO PATIENTS FIND OUT IF THEY HAVE OSTEOPOROSIS?
Osteoporosis can be easily detected through a painless procedure called dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA). This test measures the density or solidness of the bones, known as the bone mineral density or BMD.
It uses a thin, invisible beam of low-dose X-rays through the region of interest (usually the lumbar spine and the hip) via two energy streams.
A reading is derived and is reflected as units gram per cm. this will tell us whether is there any osteoporosis.
