Osteoporosis (also known as bone loss) is a disease of the skeletal system. The bones lose their strength and often lead to fractures of the vertebrae, the hip joint or the wrists, without having suffered an accident.
In order to be able to assess the personal risk of osteoporosis and thus the risk of fracture, a bone density measurement is necessary as a basic diagnosis. We use the most modern generation of DXA methods to measure bone density and guarantee reliable measurement results, short measurement times and minimal radiation exposure.
The personal fracture risk can be estimated with the measurement result in connection with further examination findings. The therapy will take place depending on the DXA measurement results and according to the guidelines of the DVO (German Umbrella Association of Osteoporosis).
