Usefulness of Bone Mineral Density Measurement in Menopausal Woman: A Study of 217 Post Menopausal Women

Bone mineral densitometry was done in 217 women in their menopausal period using Dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) method. All the patients were presented with different post menopausal syndromes. Quantification of bone mineral density were done in proximal femur and lumber spines of all the patients along with plain X-ray of the sites.
