Bone Mineral Density (BMD)
Bone fragility caused by osteoporosis is a serious health problem in old age. Early bone mineral density measurements using Bone Mineral Density (BMD) can help assess the risk of future fractures.
What is BMD?
The examination to measure the density or density of minerals in bone using X-rays with the resulting radiation dose is much smaller than other common radiological devices.
This check is performed at several locations or points such as:
- Hip bone / groin
- Lower arm bone
- Can also be done on the whole body
