Description:
The clinical significance of Osteoporosis (OP) resides in fracture related morbidity & mortality. Measurements of bone mineral density (BMD), via DXA are central to the diagnosis & assessment of OP. The European Commission in 1998 recommended that access to bone densitometry should be universal for people with accepted clinical indicators.1 Kanis et al in 2003 compared DXA needs of various European countries to their current supply.2 Figures for Ireland were not available. The aim of this survey was to provide a baseline view of current DXA services in Ireland.
