Women's Bone Health
Strong women need strong bones. Your bone density is important because it can help to predict the risk of getting a fracture.
At Sterling Regional MedCenter, we provide bone density screenings and DXA scans to determine bone strength. These can also help predict the risk of fracture much like cholesterol readings can help predict the risk of heart disease.
Your physicians can use this information to develop a plan to address bone health needs.
Bone density and DXA scans are simple, fast and painless. Each uses ultrasound waves rather than x-ray technology adding to the level of safety.
