Bone Mineral Densitometry Scan


Metro Radiology’s bone mineral densitometry  (BMD) scan in Brisbane is a gentle and non-invasive procedure that uses low energy X-rays to measure the density of one’s bone, usually in the lumbar spine and the hip/s. Commonly used to diagnose osteoporosis, it is also used to monitor one’s bone density and assess the potential risk of fracture.
