Osteoporosis is a disease that causes bones to loose density, become weak and prone to fracture. This screening offers a peripheral measure of the ankle bone. This test is quick and non-invasive. It requires you to place your bare foot onto the ultrasound machine for a result within 15 seconds. This test is a screening tool to determine if you are at possible risk for fracture and if further testing is indicated.
