Osteoporosis and DEXA Bone Densitometry

Osteoporosis is a condition caused by reduction of the bone matrix. Bones are weak and brittle. Osteoporosis can lead to fractures, mainly of the spine and hip.

Osteoporosis is often asymptomatic until fractures occur, but can also be detected using DEXA bone densitometry examination.

DEXA bone densitometry is used to detect osteoporosis or osteopenia. It is done safely and conveniently using only a low dose of radiation. The result of the DEXA bone densitometry will indicate the bone fracture risk, compared against reference from the World Health Organization (WHO).
