Description

Auckland Bone Density was formed in 1994 by clinical, academic and research bone specialists in order to advance effective prevention and treatment of osteoporosis and the fracture complications.

Bone density measurements are used to indicate bone strength and to allow our specialists to guide programmes for referring doctors and their patients.

Auckland Bone Density uses DXA, a high technology measurement technique that is the leading research and clinical method worldwide. This allows measurements of bone density at the spine, both hips and, if necessary, the forearm and total body. Measurements for children are available. In addition, spine scans can provide images of vertebral shape for fracture detection. Total body composition studies are also available.
