Abstract
Bone mineral density (BMD) measurements are used to determine bone health and can help to identify the risk of fracture. The most widely recognized BMD scan, which measures bone density at dierent parts of the body, is called dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA). The DXA measures are compared to the BMD of a healthy 30-year-old adult of the same gender and are converted into T-scores: T-scores above -1 are considered normal, values between -1 and -2.5 indicate low bone mass (osteopenia), and v...
