Scan Results
Anon_73363 posted:
I just received the results of my second bone density scan results (they were three years apart). My dr now says I have osteoporosis in my spine and that there has been a 9% loss. I asked for the test results which are:

Hip 0.914
Spine 0.867

I am having trouble relating these counts to what I am reading on webmd. Can you help?
bonebabe responded:
Ask him for the T-scores. They should be printed on the scans. Osteoporosis is defined as a T-score of -2.5 or lower or the presence of a hip or vertebral fracture.
