REPORT (second test):
Total bone mineral content of L1 through L4 is 46.68 gm., with an average bone mineral density of 0.852 gm./sq./cm. These values are compatible with mild osteopenia. . .
Compared with previous study of 2-24-97, there has been an interim
annualized decrease in average bone mineral density in the lumbar
spine of 7.27% per year, a significant loss.
The patient and her physician were very concerned about the high bone loss, and she was referred to my clinic to evaluate her 7% decreased bone density.Updated 8/8/05
