Finally Affordable Bone Scanning for All

Welcome to Bone Health Test.

We are dedicated to bringing affordable bone density testing to the Puget Sound Region using the convenience of a mobile clinic.

Why Be Tested?
Because bone density peaks between the ages of 25-30, it is prudent to have a bone scan done early to establish a baseline.  With this information your doctor will be better able to inform you of your risks associated with osteoporosis.  Many people think deterioration of bone mass only affects postmenopausal women in their 50's, however 20% of the population with osteoporosis are men.  

More about Osteoporosis
There are many web sites that address osteoporosis.  State and Federal Government sites have a lot of information. You'll also find useful information on the web sites of densitometer machine manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, and of course, hospitals and other medical providers and medical information sites.  Here are a few useful sites that will help you become familiar with the disease, testing options, prevention, and treatment for osteoporosis:

  1. National Osteoporosis Foundation: http://www.nof.org/prevention/index.htm

In summary these sites recommend the following prevention guidelines:

  • Get your daily recommended amounts of calcium and vitamin D
  • Engage in regular weight-bearing exercise
  • Avoid smoking and excessive alcohol
  • Have a bone density test at least every 2 years
  • Talk to your healthcare provider about bone health and take medication when appropriate
