Osteoporosis has no warning signs. Besides making bones fragile, they can easily break due to stress. Bone Mass Measurement can assess the bone quality and the risk of a possible fracture that can facilitate early treatment.
IMC bone density test uses the new generation of iDEXA to evaluate the amount of calcium and other minerals in the bone. The radiation level is low and it is safe.
Women over 50 and men over 70 are at high risk for osteoporosis. However, we also recommend that you come for an osteoporosis test in the following cases.
1. Shortened height over 4 cm
2. Fracture occurred
3. Long-term use of steroids
4. Have an organ or bone marrow transplant
5. Hormone reduction (menopausal women/patients with prostate cancer)
