Most women find that the density of their bones decreases over time as part of the natural aging process. In the video below, learn about the uses of bone density scans and T-scores in detecting osteoporosis and helping you stay active.
During a bone density test, your primary doctor will have you lay down on a scanning table. A scanning arm then painlessly and non-invasively scans your spine and hips in order to determine your current bone density. A T-score between 0 and -1 is considered normal bone density, whereas a T-score of -1 to -2.49 is referred to as osteopenia, or low bone mass.
