What is a Bone Mineral Density Test (BMD)?
A bone mineral density test is a quick and painless x ray that estimates how dense or thick your bones are. Small amounts of radiation are passed through a selected part of the body to produce a diagnostic image. The X-rays measure how much minerals and calcium are in your bones. The more mineral content in your bones, the better they are. There are some risks involved in getting an X-ray. But for most people, the potential benefits outweigh the risks. Talk to your doctor to learn more about what is right for you.
