Bone Densitometry

We have acquired a state-of-the-art Hologic Delphi QDR bone densitometer. This excellent machine allows both screening and tracking in the management of bone loss. Since osteoporosis is a silent disease, women must be aware of the risk factors for this problem, and obtain bone density testing when needed.

 

Risk Factors for

  • Menopause
  • Family history of Osteoporosis
  • Cigarette Use
  • Thin body build
  • Long-term (over 3 months) use of steroids
  • Caucasion race
  • Thyroid problems
  • Use of Depo-Provera(DMPA), depo-medroxyprogesterone acetate

If you have one or more of these factors, ask Dr. Gurley about bone density testing, a painless, quick, and safe procedure.
