Should you undergo the osteoporotic testing

UIkit

Osteoporosis is one of the key healthcare problems across the world. According to the international experts, this condition has become a virtual epidemic. The principal feature distinguishing osteoporosis from the other locomotor apparatus diseases is an almost entire absence of clinical manifestations up to the fracture occurring. Only one in three vertebral fractures is clinically detected (Briggs A.M., 2007; Genant H.K., 2002; Поворознюк В.В., 2009).

Taking into account a significant medico-social importance of osteoporosis, it is very important to evaluate the bone tissue at the early stages.

«Dual X- Ray absorptiometry is considered a ‘gold standard’ of bone mineral assessment.
