Bone Density Scan Service @ PLMG

August 7, 2019

 

 

All patients over 70 will soon be receiving a letter offering you the free bone density scan which will identify your risk of osteoporosis.

 

As part of our ongoing commitment to patient care, we have arranged for a specialist bone density scanning service at our Medical Clinic on the 7th October 2019 for two weeks..

 

This service is free for you if you are over 70 - it is bulk-billed with no gap. (If you have had a bone density scan elsewhere in the last 12 months, you do not need a scan now.)

 

It is important to have a bone density scan.

 

Even if you feel healthy, having a scan is advisable because osteoporosis is common and has no visible symptoms. It affects 1 in 3 women and 1 in 12 men.

 

People with osteoporosis are more likely to break a bone should they fall, which can lead to ongoing health issues. If you find you are at risk, you can take steps to protect yourself through diet and exercise.

 

Your scan takes just ten minutes.

 

The scanning service is provided by MeasureUp, who will bring a mobile laboratory to our Medical Clinic. The lab carries a DEXA machine which is a highly-precise type of X-ray. The scan is totally painless and takes just ten minutes. You keep your clothes on and there’s no need to fast.

 

 

We do hope you will be able to take advantage of this free healthcare service.
