Bone density screening FloridaWhile bone loss is a natural part of the aging process, a more serious condition called osteoporosis results in bones becoming more fragile.
Screening for osteoporosis is the first step to prevention. If discovered early, life style changes and medications can help to promote increased bone mineral density.
Bone density screening is extremely safe, painless, and takes less than 20 minutes.
The patient lies on a table and relaxes during the procedure while a mechanical arm-like device passes over the body without touching it.
There is no advance preparation for the test, and the patient may resume normal activities immediately after the test.
