Bone densitometry is a test like an X-ray that quickly and accurately measures the density of bone. It is used primarily to detect osteopenia or osteoporosis, diseases in which the bone’s mineral and density are low and the risk of fractures is increased. Bone densitometry technologists are radiology professionals who are responsible for measuring patients’ bone mass to determine bone health, especially for the purpose of diagnosing osteoporosis and other bone diseases.
Working in a team-based setting where everyone is committed to patient improvement is the main reason why Mary Jane chose this particular field.
