Bone DensitometryLike all other organs of the body, bones are constantly changing and some of these changes could result in osteoporosis. This is a condition where bones become weak to the point of breaking. Since symptoms do not occur until a great deal of bone strength is lost, it is a good idea for both men and women to have a bone density test performed. The test is painless, comfortable, easy and fast. It is also safe and there is no prior preparation needed. You can eat normally, with no injections or medication needed.
To schedule a bone density appointment, consult your physician about bone densitometry testing or call the specially trained personnel at ECMH using the following information:
