The amount of calcium and other minerals in a particular section of your bone can be determined by a bone mineral density (BMD) test. This test aids in the diagnosis of osteoporosis and forecasts your risk of bone fractures for your doctor.

How the BMD Test is Performed?

Bone density testing can be done in several ways.The most common and accurate way uses a dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) scan. DEXA uses low-dose x-rays. (You receive more radiation from a chest x-ray.)

How is bone density measured?

A bone mineral density (BMD) test is a type of low-dose X-ray that calculates the amount of calcium and other minerals existing in your bones. It is the only test that can evaluate osteoporosis.
