Osteoporosis Screening in Boston

Osteoporosis is a preventable disease.

Our Boston clinic provides screening to help detect osteoporosis before a fracture occurs, predict chances of a future fracture, and determine rate of bone loss or monitor treatment.

We offer:
  • State-of-the-art bone densitometry (BMD testing)
  • Follow-up services, including additional BMD tests, to determine the effectiveness of treatment and monitor rate of bone loss
  • Referrals for physical therapy
Who needs the osteoporosis test?

All women over the age of 65 should have a baseline BMD, which should be repeated every other year (annually if a woman is being treated for osteoporosis). BMD testing is recommended for:
  • women with one or more risk factors for osteoporosis
  • postmenopausal women who present with a fracture
  • women considering therapy for osteoporosis, if testing would facilitate the decision
  • women who have been on hormone therapy
  • men and women with fractures or hyperparathyroidism
  • men and women who take corticosteroids
