Discounted Bone Density Testing PDF Print E-mail

10 million Americans are estimated to have osteoporosis, and 30 million more have low bone mass. Approximately one in two women over 50 will break a bone because of osteoporosis.

In recognition of National Osteoporosis Education and Awareness Month, South Peninsula Hospital is offering a $100 discount on bone density scans during the month of May. This 30 minute test identifies people who have or are at the risk for developing osteoporosis and is recommended for women over 50 and individuals with a family history of osteoporosis.
