Bone density measurement by ultrasound

Bone density measurement is used for early diagnosis and follow-up of osteoporosis. Bone density (mineral salt content of the bones) is determined with this method.

The procedure

Osteosonography is a non-invasive procedure. The modern equipment technology does not expose the patient to any stress. The technical principle is based on a quantitative ultrasonic measurement. The specific sound conduction velocity and the sound attenuation through the bone are measured, which allow the density of the bone tissue to be assessed.The finger bones are the preferred measurement location in addition to the shinbone, forearm or heel bone. On one side of the finger is a transmitter that sends ultrasonic waves through the finger. These are registered and logged by a receiver on the opposite side of the finger.The device measures both the time it takes for the ultrasound waves to travel from the transmitter to the receiver and how much ultrasound is absorbed by the bone. The sound conduction velocity and the sound attenuation are then calculated from this. The measured values are compared with standard values.

Your benefit

By recognizing a loss of bone mass in good time, the decalcification processes of the bone can be stopped or reversed by means of nutritional, medicinal and physiotherapeutic measures. Regular check-ups will significantly reduce your risk of fractures and improve your quality of life.
