Bone Density Testing
Affecting one out of four American women each year, osteoporosis is a condition resulting from a gradual loss of bone tissue, typically following menopause. Bethesda Women’s Health center uses a digital bone densitometer with CAD (computer-aided detection) to provide view of both the spine and hip for osteoporosis screening. The equipment is also capable of vertebral fracture assessment.
