Bone Mineral Density Testing

Here at Pickering Diagnostic Imaging we offer bone mineral density (BMD) testing and scanning.

This test is one of the pillars in the diagnosis and management of osteoporosis, a medical condition in which the bones become brittle and fragile from loss of tissue. Osteoporosis affects more than 2 million Canadians. While 1 in 8 women have a lifetime risk of developing breast cancer, 1 in 4 women have a lifetime risk of developing osteoporosis (1 in 8 for men).
