bone density (…DEN-sih-tee)

A measure of the amount of minerals (mostly calcium and phosphorous) contained in a certain
volume of bone. Bone density measurements are used to diagnose osteoporosis (a condition
marked by decreased bone mass), to see how well osteoporosis treatments are working, and to
predict how likely the bones are to break. Low bone density can occur in patients treated for
cancer. Also called BMD, bone mass, and bone mineral density.
