What is a BMD test?

A BMD test is a low dose x-ray that is used to assist Physicians in determining their patient’s risk of osteoporosis. From these results, the Physician is then able to create a treatment plan, incorporating regular weight-bearing exercise, calcium (diet and supplements) vitamin D and fall prevention strategies.
 

How can I book an appointment for a BMD? 

Patients require referral from their physician and appointments are booked through the Diagnostic Imaging Department.
