Every human being slowly loses bone mass with age. Starting from a certain threshold, relative to age and gender, this loss leads first to osteopenia and with further progression to osteoporosis. It is a mostly chronically painful metabolic disorder of the skeleton, which favours increased risk of fractures.
The bone density analysis carried out in the Radiology Ottobrunn with the DXA (Dual-Energy X-ray Absorptiometry) is the only method for the determination of bone density officially recognized by the WHO (World Health Organization) and the DGO (German Society for Osteology) .
Already in the symptom-free phase of bone density reduction there should be an according treatment in regards of a preventative medical point of view.
In the case of osteopenia or osteoporosis, we offer you a individually tailored treatment in cooperation with MedPrevent.
