There are a variety of tests available which help screen for osteoporosis or osteopenia, but one reliable method is a bone density test which helps:
- Detect osteoporosis before a fracture occurs.
- Predict your chances of fracturing in the future.
- Determine your rate of bone loss and/or monitor the effects of treatment if the test is repeated at intervals of a year or more.
Osteoporosis is a major health issue for women, especially those over age 50. Schedule a bone density test by calling (401) 276-7838.
