Bone mineral densitometry also known as BMD is the examination or the test that measures the bone density. A special machine is used to scan the lower spine and one of the hips to assess for the possible onset of osteoporosis and reduced bone density. Osteoporosis is the condition where there is a loss of bone mass which leads to the weakening of the bones and increasing the chances of a fracture. If you are suffering from the problem of frequent fractures, you can get this test done and get relevant medication to stop the progress of the problem.
