Background: Measuring the density of the bone plays a vital role in the analysis of the
human bone health. The present study was conducted to assess role of bone mineral
density in assessment of osteoporosis.
Materials & Methods: 75 patients age ranged 30-60 years of both genders were
included. The BMD estimation of these patients was done by quantitative
ultrsonography of the calcaneal bone and the analysis done on the basis of T –scores. R
Results: Age group 30-40 years had 26, 40-50 years had 30 and 50-60 years had 19
patients. clinical presentation was backache in 35%, bone pain in 48% and fracture in
17%. osteopenia was seen in 45 and osteoporosis in 30 patients.
Conclusion: osteoporosis was seen in maximum subjects. Hence there is need to look
after bone calcium and phosphate level especially in age subjects.
