Bone Density Testing

Bone density testing is used to determine a woman's risk of osteoporosis. This safe, painless procedure uses small amounts of radiation to measure bone density. As with breast cancer, early detection is important in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis.

What to Expect at Your Bone Density Test

This simple procedure usually takes between 10 and 20 minutes. Depending on the part of the body being tested, you may simply lie on a table or place your arm on the table. Dress comfortably, but don't wear clothes with metal buttons, buckles or zippers. Be sure to tell your health-care provider if you're pregnant.
