    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    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.
