offering women's diagnostic services.
Marlborough Hospital provides diagnostic and treatment services at our Women's
Imaging Center at Southborough, 28 Newton Street, Southborough, for individuals
either at risk or who have osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis is a disease that causes the bones to become thinner and weaker
over time, thereby increasing the chances for a fracture. Bones in the spine and
hip are particularly susceptible to fractures due to osteoporosis. Although
women are four times more likely to develop osteoporosis, it can affect men as
Women's Imaging Center offers bone density tests, which is the standard test
for diagnosing osteoporosis. The quick and painless test is performed on a
machine called a bone densitometer and is very similar to having an x-ray
performed while lying down. A bone density test measures the thickness of bones
and can detect the effects of osteoporosis. Exercise, medications, dietary
supplements, and changes in diet and lifestyle can all help to minimize the
effects of osteoporosis.
Marlborough Hospital also has endocrinologists on its medical staff, who
specialize in the treatment of osteoporosis.
