Bone Mineral Density

Bone Mineral Density (BMD) is a measurement of the concentration of minerals in the bones which are vital for strong bones. A high BMD indicates above average amounts of calcium and phosphates in the bones, while a below-normal bone mineral density can indicate a loss of bone mass, possibly from osteoporosis. A BMD examination will assess the integrity of your bones; it does not provide a diagnosis for pain or measure arthritic changes. For more information, click here.
