Bone Density (DEXA)
The National Osteoporosis Foundation estimates 55% of
people age 50 and older in the United States have osteoporosis or low
bone mass. Of these, more than 14 million men and 30 million women are
affected by this condition.
Osteoporosis is treatable and preventable. Early diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and the use of bone density testing to diagnose and monitor response to therapy have greatly improved the prognosis for patients.
