Densi Check

Assessment of the status of and susceptibility to osteoporosis and osteopenia

How strong are your bones?

Densi check is carried out using quantitative bone ultrasonometry. This is a diagnostic technique based on the transmission of high-frequency ultrasonic waves passed through the bone’s mineralised component. It is carried out at the heel bone, whose structural organisation reflects systemic bone metabolism, and therefore also reflects the hip bone’s state. It provides an indication of bone strength and as well as the determination of the patient’s susceptibility to the risk of osteoporotic fracture. This method is used in the study of quantitative and qualitative skeletal changes caused by menopause, ageing and other osteopenic conditions.
