Bone densitometry

What does it consist of?

Bone densitometry is a simple and painless examination that is used for the prevention, diagnosis and control of osteoporosis, a pathology characterized by a decrease in bone density due to the loss of normal bone tissue. This causes the bones to become more fragile and less resistant to trauma and loads, with the consequent risk of suffering bone fractures.

Cases in which it is recommended

To whom?

This test is especially recommended for:

  • People who have a very low body weight.
  • People who have suffered one or more fractures after the age of 50.
  • Patients with a family history of osteoporosis.
  • Women in the postmenopausal phase.
  • People, particularly children, with intestinal absorption problems that influence growth



The ideal time to perform a first bone densitometry would be around 50 years of age and it is recommended to repeat it after 18 months.
