The study suggests that ultrasound could be offered as a low-cost, more accessible method of screening for osteoporosis and other bone diseases,
“Ultrasonography of the Radius and Tibia offers a low-cost, efficient means to screen bone health. The affordability and mobility of a US [ultrasound] bone machine enables its use as a screening method that may be applicable to large numbers of people,”

Main Function Bone Densitometry is to measure the bone density or bone strength of the People's radius and tibia. It is for Preventing osteoporosis. It provides an exceptionally affordable, professional solution for early assessment of osteoporosis. It enables reliable, accurate, non-invasive and safe monitoring of bone density. it is ease of use, and convenient USB-port connectivity to Windows™ 7 and above PCs and laptops makes it ideal for use in any physician office or medical clinic, pharmacy, annual checkup center or other retail venue.
It is an economic solution for evaluating the risk of osteoporotic fracture. Its high accuracy assists in the first diagnosis of osteoporosis monitoring bone changes. It provides fast, convenient and easy-to-use informations on bone quality and fracture risk.
Trolley ultrasound bone densitometry BMD-A7 is for testing bone density. It can be used for diagnosing diseases, as well as for disease screening and physical examination of healthy people. Ultrasound bone densitometer is cheaper than DEXA bone densitometer , simple to operate, no radiation, high accuracy, less investment. A bone mineral density test, sometimes just called a bone density test, detects whether you have osteoporosis.
When you have the osteoporosis, your bones get weak and thin. They become more likely to break. Bone and joint pain and fractures caused by osteoporosis are common clinical diseases, such as deformation of the lumbar and back vertebrae, Disc disease, vertebral body fracture,cervical spondylosis, limb joint and bone pain, lumbar spine, femoral neck, radius fracture and so on. Therefore, bone mineral density examination is very necessary for the diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis and its complications.
Having weak bones that easily break is a sign of osteoporosis. It is normal for your bones to become less dense as you grow older, but osteoporosis speeds up this process. This condition can particularly lead to problems in older age because broken bones do not heal as easily in older people as they do in young people, and the consequences are more serious. In general, osteoporosis is more common in women, and they often develop it at a younger age.
Getting older does not mean that you will automatically develop osteoporosis, but the risk does increase with age. People over the age of 70 are more likely to have low bone density. Plus, the risk of falling increases in old age, which then also makes fractures more likely.
But there are several things you can do to protect and strengthen your bones – even if you are already older.
Osteoporosis often goes undetected at first. Sometimes there are obvious signs that a person has osteoporosis – they may ”shrink” a little and develop a stooped posture, for example. But often the first sign that someone has osteoporosis is when they break a bone, sometimes without knowing how or why it happened. This kind of break is called a “spontaneous fracture.”
When bone mass is lost the risk of breaking a bone (fractures) is higher. Osteoporosis that has already caused a fracture is referred to as “established” osteoporosis.
The bones of the spinal column (vertebrae) are the most likely to break or “collapse” in someone who has osteoporosis. Sometimes this will cause back pain, but most people do not notice anything.
Broken vertebrae are one reason why many older people stoop over and develop what is often called a “dowager's hump” at the top of their spine.
Osteoporosis also commonly affects the wrist, the upper arm and the femur (thigh bone).

A bone mineral density (BMD) test is the only way to detect low bone density and diagnose osteoporosis. The lower a person's bone mineral density, the greater the risk of having a fracture.
A BMD test is used to:
● Detect low bone density before a person breaks a bone
● Predict a person's chances of breaking a bone in the future
● Confirm a diagnosis of osteoporosis when a person has already broken a bone
● Determine whether a person's bone density is increasing, decreasing or remaining stable (the same)
● Monitor a person's response to treatment
There are some reasons (called risk factors) that increase your likelihood of developing osteoporosis. The more risk factors you have, the more likely you are to get osteoporosis and broken bones. Some examples are being small and thin, older age, being female, a diet low in calcium, lack of enough vitamin D, smoking and drinking too much alcohol.
Your doctor may recommend a BMD test if you are:
● A postmenopausal woman under age 65 with one or more risk factors for osteoporosis
● A man age 50-70 with one or more risk factors for osteoporosis
● A woman age 65 or older, even without any risk factors
● A man age 70 or older, even without any risk factors
● A woman or man after age 50 who has broken a bone
● A woman going through menopause with certain risk factors
● A postmenopausal woman who has stopped taking estrogen therapy (ET) or hormone therapy (HT)
Other reasons your health care provider may recommend a BMD test:
● Long-term use of certain medications including steroids (for example, prednisone and cortisone), some anti-seizure medications, Depo-Provera and aromatase inhibitors (for example, anastrozole, brand name Arimidex)
● A man receiving certain treatments for prostate cancer
● A woman receiving certain treatments for breast cancer
● Overactive thyroid gland (hyperthyroidism) or taking high doses of thyroid hormone medication
● Overactive parathyroid gland (hyperparathyroidism)
● X-ray of the spine showing a fracture or bone loss
● Back pain with a possible fracture
● Significant loss of height
● Loss of sex hormones at an early age, including early menopause
● Having a disease or condition that can cause bone loss (such as rheumatoid arthritis or anorexia nervosa)
The results of the BMD test help your health care provider make recommendations about either prevention of osteoporosis or treatment of osteoporosis. When making a decision about treatment with an osteoporosis medication, your health care provider will also consider your risk factors for osteoporosis, your likelihood of having future fractures, your medical history and your current health.
