Differences in determining bone density scores have been found when comparing different bone density machines. Reducing differences between machines will improve diagnostic agreement for patients measured at different clinics. This study will test if this difference exists between the Norland Excel, such as the one at Wildwood Clinic, and the GE Healthcare Lunar Prodigy at the UW Osteoporosis Clinical Research Center.

Agents that inhibit BONE RESORPTION and/or favor BONE MINERALIZATION and BONE REGENERATION. They are used to heal BONE FRACTURES and to treat METABOLIC BONE DISEASES.
The measurement of the density of a material by measuring the amount of light or radiation passing through (or absorbed by) the material.
A type of osseous tissue which makes up the inner part of bone. It has a spongy, honeycomb-like structure with struts or trabecula and contains the BONE MARROW. It has higher rate of BONE REMODELING turnover than CORTICAL BONE.
Removal of mineral constituents or salts from bone or bone tissue. Demineralization is used as a method of studying bone strength and bone chemistry.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
