Bone density testing and individual consultation

• Susan Fullemann, MD  

Could YOU Have Osteoporosis?

Call us to schedule DEXA Bone Mineral Density Test of the spine and hip, the most accurate and universally accepted test for detecting and monitoring osteoporosis.

*Certified by the International Society for Clinical Densitometry.

If you are a 50 year old woman, you have a 50% chance of having osteoporosis or osteopenia and a 40% chance of having an osteoporosis-related fracture in the future.

If you are a 65 year old woman, you have a 95% chance of having osteoporosis or osteopenia and a 25% chance of already having a vertebral (spine) compression fracture.

Osteoporosis can be prevented with currently available medications. Early detection of bone loss can help you prevent painful fractures, maintain an active life, preserve your independence, and prolong life. Osteoporosis treatment can cut the risk of fractures by more than half even if osteoporosis is already present. Estrogen or hormone replacement therapy alone does not reliably protect women from osteoporosis. Drugstore screening heel and forearm scans are not accurate enough to diagnose osteoporosis.

We accept Medicare, PPO's and Lifeguard HMO. Medicare covers Bone density testing every 2 years for menopausal women and men with risk factors.
