BMD in Hyderabad

A BMD also called the Bone Density Test, is a procedure used to measure bone mineral content and density. This test helps to determine bone disorders and the presence of abnormalities. Aruna Diagnostics presents the best BMD in Hyderabad for its patients using advanced technology equipment.

Strong bones are essential for everyone, and as we age, conditions like Osteoporosis set in, triggering the risk of fractures. In such situations, BMD helps identify Osteoporosis and determine your risk for fractures (broken bones). BMD also investigates how the patient is responding to osteoporosis treatment. 

BMD uses X-Rays, to estimate how dense the bones are. BMD also measures how many grams of calcium and other minerals are packed in the bone. More mineral quantity in bones indicates that the bones are denser and stronger. If the mineral quantity in the bones is low, it indicates that the chances of breaking a bone are higher.

BMD primarily examines bones in the spine, hip, heel, wrist, and forearm areas. BMD is done using X-rays, dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA or DXA), or a special CT scan using computer software.

Why is a BMD recommended?   

A BMD in Hyderabad is mainly recommended to look for Osteoporosis and Osteopenia (decreased bone mass). Early detection of these problems increases treatment chances and helps prevent bone fractures. A bone density test is used to 

  • Confirm diagnosis of Osteoporosis
  • Determine the rate of bone loss
  • Detect decreases in bone density in early stages
  • Predict the risk of bone fracture in future
  • Monitor the treatment of Osteoporosis

Who should go for a BMD Test

The doctor strongly recommends a BMD test if you have 

  • Post-menopausal Women aged above 60 years
  • Advancing age, Men over 70
  • Family history of Osteoporosis
  • Excessive alcohol consumption and smoking
  • If you are on any medicine for a long term
  • Suffering from diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, type 1 diabetes, liver disease, kidney disease, hyperthyroidism, or hyperparathyroidism

BMD is a simple and painless test that needs little to no preparation. Before going for the BMD test, people should avoid wearing clothes with buttons, snaps, or zippers. This is mainly because the metal on clothes can interfere with X-ray images.
