A bone mineral density test, or just bone density tests, can detect whether you have osteoporosis beforehand. Anyone can get tested and screened for osteoporosis and other bone diseases. Essentially, the test can provide a snapshot of your bone health. The test is painless and quick. It can be done using X-rays, absorptiometry (DEXA or DXA), or special CT scans. Bone density tests are important predictors of whether a person will have issues in the future. And your chances increase as you age. You should discuss with your doctor who is authorized to recommend whether you need testing.
