Osteoporosis - Diagnosis

Bone mineral density (BMD) testing is done to examine bone density. Osteoporosis is diagnosed when the bone density is abnormally low. BMD testing is most commonly done using dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry, otherwise known as a DXA scan. This is a special x-ray taken of the hips and spine. 

The results of BMD testing can be used to diagnose osteoporosis, and to guide decisions about starting or adjusting treatment for osteoporosis.
