Services: Bone Density Test

Osteoporosis screening is performed to measure bone density. The screening is a painless, noninvasive 3 minute procedure, in which a measurement of your bone density mineral is produced in order to help assess your risk of osteoporosis. Results from your test will be explained to you by one of our doctors.

Over 20 million American women have osteoporosis, but only 4 million know it. Fortunately, a simple bone mineral density test will tell you whether you're at risk. For your convenience, we offer bone density testing at our Fort Myers office.

If you're a woman over 50, a bone density test may be one of the most important procedures you should have. Osteoporosis is both preventable and treatable. Recent advances in effective treatment have provided new medications that can actually increase bone density.
