Bone Density Testing
Osteoporosis is a disease which causes porous bones. This condition weakens the bones, leading to the risk of dangerous bone fractures and serious spinal injuries. Many post-menopausal women are at risk for osteoporosis.
If you are at risk for osteoporosis – or already know you have it -- Dr. Morrison may order a test that is performed with a bone densitometer, a machine that uses low-dose x-rays to measure the density of your bones. Based on the results of this test, Dr. Morrison can provide treatment options that will prevent or halt the progression of osteoporosis. Talk to Dr. Morrison about your risk factors.
