Bone density imaging – densitometry
At the Terme Zreče Health Care Centre, you can also identify modified bone density (osteopeny/osteoporosis) and body tissue composition. A state-of-the-art densitometry machine that facilitates a comprehensive analysis of body tissues (skeleton, muscles, fat tissue) is at our disposal for this kind of diagnostic procedure. The data received facilitate timely preventive and therapy recuperation that applies to osteoporosis management in particular. After your check-up, the physician draws up an expert body density analysis report in writing and advises on treatment and changes to be made to your lifestyle (exercise, diet) and how to prevent bone fractures that are, unfortunately, a very frequent occurrence in patients suffering from osteoporosis.
