Bone Densitomitry

Bone Densitomitry

Your healthcare provider is concerned about your bone health and sends you for a bone densitometry. What is that and why do you need it?

As a woman, you have to be especially concerned about caring for your bones to ensure they do not become weak or brittle. Although your physician can x-ray your bones to look for breaks, at that point it is too late. Your provider wants to be able to see any bone mineral loss at an earlier stage to keep you and your bones healthy.

Bone Density Test.

A bone densitometry is essentially a bone density test. It can tell your healthcare provider if your bone density and strength are decreasing early enough to be able to diagnose and treat osteoporosis effectively. The test can help assess your risk for developing fractures as a result of osteoporosis, which is a particularly important element of value-based women’s health.

The densitometry requires no special preparation and is relatively quick and easy for you. The test will usually measure the density of the bones in your hip, lower arm, and spine. A densitometry can be ordered by your physician to:

  • Diagnose you for the presence of osteoporosis.
  • Determine whether you are susceptible to bone fractures.
  • Determine your bone loss rate.
  • Learn whether previously prescribed treatment is working.

If your Lifeline Medical Associates healthcare provider reaches a diagnosis, based on the densitometry, that you have osteoporosis, they can begin treatment to help you avoid the complications of broken bones that can be related to the disease.

I wish the office used drapes over your abdomen. Most doctors use them. The opening of the gown you wear goes in the front. When you lay down to get examined you are exposed. A drape covers you up. I wish they used them. I felt very self conscious.
