Osteoporosis detection

One of the major concerns for women in their midlife years is bone health and osteoporosis.

Bone density tests measure bone mineral density (BMD) and compare your measurements to a standard that is determined by the average bone density of a healthy young adult. The results are called a T-score and are used to help the doctor diagnose your bone status. There are several kinds of bone density tests.

The Novant Health Maya Angelou Women's Health & Wellness Center at Forsyth Medical Center uses the World Health Organization’s Fracture Risk Assessment Tool (FRAX®) to evaluate the fracture risk of its patients. FRAX assesses the individual’s possible risk factors and bone mineral density to determine the probability of a fracture in the future.

Your gynecologist also plays an important role in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis during your annual exams, gynecological surgery, infertility treatment and breast care. Make sure you ask your doctor for advice about your bone health.
