All About Bone Mineral Density & Bone Mineral Density Test

The bone mineral density can be concerning. It's always best to seek professional advice from a trained orthopaedic. Bone mineral density (BMD) refers to the amount of mineral matter per square centimeter of bones. It's a measure commonly used to evaluate bone health and strength. The main minerals that contribute to bone density are calcium and phosphorus, primarily in the form of hydroxyapatite crystals. BMD is typically assessed through a non-invasive imaging technique called dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA or DXA). So consult our doctor immediately.
