What is Bone density test ?

Also known as Osteoporosis screening, bone density test or Bone Mineral Density (BMD) test is done to assess the mineral content like how much calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and other minerals are present in a specific area of the bones. The most common and accurate method is through dual-energy X-Ray absorptiometry (DEXA) scan where low dose X-rays (lower than what you get during chest X Ray) are applied.
