A broken bone can interfere with a person’s daily activities and can have serious consequences. It is important for a person to know whether they have this silent disease so that they can take steps to prevent a fracture and protect their ability to lead an independent, active lifestyle.

A BMD test can Measure the density of bone, detect osteoporosis before a fracture occurs, help to predict the chances of fracture in the future, monitor the effectiveness of treatments for osteoporosis, etc. On occasion of World Osteoporosis Day a Free BMD screening Camp is scheduled on 6 August ,2015 from 10 am to 4 pm at Department of Orthopedics KMC Hospital, Attavar.
