Women’s Imaging

Why test bone density?

Osteoporosis is a bone disease that develops when bone mineral density and bone mass decreases, causing changes to the structure and strength of the bone. Women are at higher risk for osteoporosis, and this risk increases with age. At MIC, our state-of-the-art bone densitometry machine allows us to diagnose and monitor low bone mass and osteoporosis.

What To Expect?

Bone Density Scanning

Avoid Calcium Supplements

For at least 24 hours before your exam, avoid calcium suppliments as they can interfere with the results.

Wear Loose, Comfortable Clothing

Opt for attire that is loose and comfortable, and ensure it is free from metal zippers, buttons, or belts, as these can interfere with the scan’s clarity.

Inform Your Healthcare Provider

Let your healthcare provider know if you have recently had a barium exam or injected contrast material for a CT scan or MRI, as these can affect the results of the scan.

Remove Metal Objects

Remove all jewellery, eyeglasses, piercings and other metal items before the scan to prevent any obstruction and ensure accurate imaging results.
