Now Available: Bone Densitometer Devices Market Forecast And Growth 2015-2025

Press Release   •   Feb 26, 2016 01:21 EST

Bone densitometer is a piece of X-ray apparatus used to measure the calcium content of bone to reflect bone density and therefore bone fracture risk. It used to detect osteopenia/osteoporosis and the diseases in which the bone density get low and the risk of fractures become high.

The main purpose of bone densitometer devices is to identify those at risk of developing osteoporosis and to monitor change in bone density, mainly with therapy procedures. These procedures is used to evaluate the lower spine and hips, and is considered the current standard for measuring bone mineral density.

Due to prevalence worldwide, osteoporosis is considered a serious public health concern. Currently it is estimated that over 200 million people worldwide suffer from this disease. Approximately 30% of all postmenopausal women have osteoporosis in the United States and in Europe.
