Bone densitometry

Bone densitometry is a technique that allows you to measure the density of calcium in your bones.

It is a very useful test to detect osteoporosis early, and it also serves to evaluate the response to treatment in people who suffer from it. It is an easy technique to perform due to its speed, cost and comfort for the patient, since it is not painful or requires admission to the hospital. However, it has not been proven that it is necessary to perform this test in all people at risk of osteoporosis, it will only be useful to perform it in specific groups of patients.


It is used to diagnose osteoporosis, a disease that frequently affects women after menopause, but can also affect men and very rarely children. Osteoporosis includes a gradual loss of calcium, as well as structural changes, causing the bones to lose thickness, become more brittle and more likely to break.

It is also effective in monitoring the effects of treatment for osteoporosis and other diseases that cause bone loss.

Osteoporosis is a bone disease that occurs when the body loses too much bone, makes too little bone, or both.  As a result, the bones become weak and can be broken by a fall or, in severe cases, by sneezing or minor blows.

Osteoporosis means "porous bone."


Viewed under a microscope, healthy bone looks like a honeycomb.  When osteoporosis occurs, the holes and spaces in the honeycomb are much larger than in healthy bone.  Osteoporotic bones have lost density or mass and contain an abnormal tissue structure.  As bones become less dense, they weaken and are more likely to break.  If you are 50 years of age or older and a bone has been broken, DOING A BONE DENSITOMETRY will help you get a better picture of your current state of your bone structure.
