|Abstract:||Introduction: Osteoporosis and its consequent fractures is a major public health problem. Aim: To formulate a position statement on the use of bone densitometry in screening postmenopausal women for osteoporosis and in their management. Materials and methods: Literature review and consensus of expert opinion. Results and conclusions: Bone densitometry has an important role in screening postmenopausal women for osteoporosis. For higher sensitivity and specificity, there may be a stronger case for screening in later life, depending on the extent to which risk factors add to the value of bone mineral density tests.|
