Stroke Detection Plus to Osteoporosis/Bone Density
 

Our painless ultrasound screening measures the density of your skeletal system, looking for low or abnormal bone mass (an abnormality can increase the risk of a fracture). We screen your heel bone, which is the most weight-bearing bone in your body. Many clients choose this test if there is a history of osteoporosis in their family. If you have never had a bone-density test, we recommend getting one so you know your T-score. This gives you a baseline to compare against in the future.

What is Osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is a disease in which bone becomes fragile and more likely to break. Bone is a complex living tissue that can heal and may be affected by poor diet and lack of exercise. Millions of Americans are at risk. While women are four times more likely than men to develop the disease, men also suffer from osteoporosis.

As part of the natural aging process, bones begin to break down faster than new bone can be formed. Osteoporosis takes away the minerals that make up the internal supporting structures of bone until it becomes so weak and brittle that bending to pick up a newspaper, lifting a vacuum, or even coughing can cause a fracture.

Any bone can be affected, but of special concern are fractures of the hip and spine. Hip fractures may require hospitalization, major surgery and may cause permanent disability or even death. Osteoporosis is painless in early stages and most people are completely unaware of the condition until a fracture occurs. Early detection through a risk analysis, such as our screening, allows physicians to start an appropriate treatment.
