Bone Density Scan

Bone Density Scan is an important procedure in the evaluation of bone health. It is a quick, simple and painless exam that uses highly sophisticated software to measure bone loss.

Bone Density Scan is our best defense in the early diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a disease characterized by a decrease in the amount of normal bone tissue with resultant increased risk of fracture, particularly in the hip and spine. This disease affects 44 million Americans, 80% of whom are women. Post menopausal women are at highest risk but both men and women lose bone strength as they age. The effects of osteoporosis can be personally devastating. Fortunately, in addition to exercise, there are a number of effective medications available for treatment of this disease that can help stop and even reverse bone loss and have a significant impact on quality of life.

Western Imaging's bone density equipment provides the most comprehensive analysis and screening of bone loss available today.


If you would like more information or to schedule an exam, please contact Western Imaging at (310) 287-4000 today.
