Diagnosis of Osteoporosis

To diagnose the Osteoporosis and risk of fractures a test is required which is commonly known as bone density scan. This scan is used to measure the Body Mineral Density(BMD). It is performed using a bone densitometry or dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA or DEXA). The DXA machine gives two scores T score and Z score. T score estimates the amount of bone in comparision to normal population and also tells us about the risk of fracture. Z score estimates the amount of bone with your gender and age and tells us about the further medical tests to be taken. The other methods used to determine the bone injuries and fractures includes Bone X-ray, CT scan and MRI.

  • DXA (peripheral DXA) measures bone mass at the forearm, finger and heel.
  • SXA (single-energy X-ray absorptiometry) measures the heel or wrist
  • DPA (dual photon absorptiometry) measures the spine, hip or total body
  • SPA (single photon absorptiometry) measures the wrist
  • QCT (Quantitative Computed Tomography) measures the spine or hip
