Bone mineral density (BMD) measurements are the gold standard by which osteoporosis is diagnosed. dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) is the most commonly used measuring technique to assess BMD at both the hip and spine. There are three sites within each hip, collectively called the femoral sites, which are assessed-the femoral neck site, the… CONTINUE READING
