Bone Density Screening
Are you looking for a bone density screening? Osteoporosis is a serious disease, and it is causing a huge health burden in the United States. As the population ages, this burden also grows. Osteoporosis involves the disruption of the micro-architecture of the skeleton, bone fragility, and low bone mass. Typically, this disease shows no symptoms until the bone loss has occurred. Bone density screening is critical to the early diagnosis of this problem.
Importance of Bone Density Screening
As osteoporosis is typically symptom-free until permanent damage has been done, it is important to have an early diagnosis to assess the treatment options which can stop or slow the progression of the disease. A bone density scan carried out by an accurate and advanced equipment such as Sunlight Omnisense 9000 is the best way to measure bone density and the risk of osteoporosis. Bone density scans such as this are painless and fast, and can be used to assess fracture risk, measure bone density, diagnose osteoporosis and precursor conditions, as well as to evaluate the effects of medication on the health of bones.
When to Have an Early Bone Density Scan?
According to medical experts, the standard guideline of getting a bone density scan is age 65. However, there are certain conditions in which it is recommended to get a bone density scan at age 60 or even earlier, especially if you have known risk factors for osteoporosis.
Following are some risk factors in which getting an early bone density scan is recommended:
• Personal history of fractures
• Family history of osteoporosis
• Early menopause
• Body weight of less than 127 pounds
• Rheumatoid arthritis which requires treatment with glucocorticoid drugs
• Thyroid disease which requires treatment with any thyroid replacement hormones
