Episode 121: An atraumatic way to break down the evidence around bone density measurements

In episode 121, Mike, James and Tina tackle the issue of who needs a bone density measurement and describe a simple tool that will help you with that decision.

However, at the end, Mike threatens to jump out of his building and James and Tina talk him down by promising not to measure his BMD more than once.

Show notes

1) Tools for Practice

Screening for Osteoporosis – Who Should Receive Bone Mineral Density Testing?

2) Osteoporosis Self Assessment Tool (OST)

Simple application of OST:

If greater than minus 5, increased risk of osteoporosis and BMD is warranted

A cut-off of greater than positive 5 should be used for Asian patients.
