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.
Densitometric results compared with the average peak bone mass results of healthy adults of the same sex, 25-30 years of age.
Densitometric results compared with the average results from subjects of the same age and sex.
Assessment of the individual’s predisposition to osteopenia or osteoporosis based on age and ethnicity.
The necessary equipment can be purchased or provided as an additional service.
After the check-up, the professional service provider will provide a brief consultation about the obtained results
