According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, 50% of women and 25% of men over the age of 50 will break a bone as a result of Osteoporosis. Unfortunately, many are not diagnosed with Osteoporosis until after they break a bone. In fact, 80% of older Americans who have had a fracture are not treated or tested for Osteoporosis.
The DEXA scan is the only scan that can diagnose Osteoporosis before a fracture occurs. Treatment can prevent about half of the fractures caused by Osteoporosis. A DEXA Scan gives you the knowledge to own your health.
