pharmacists are offering bone density tests

More pharmacists are offering bone density screen for osteoporosis and monitor drug therapy.

DEXA (dual X-ray densitometry) tests are the gold standard to detect osteoporosis. They measure bone density of the hip and spine.

But traditional DEXA tests are too expensive for routine screening. Many patients don't find out they have osteoporosis until AFTER they've had a fracture.
