Diagnosing your bones

Diagnosing your bones

At Kokilaben Hospital, Navi Mumbai our Orthopaedic doctors perform a wide array of diagnostic tests to identify the nature of the musculoskeletal condition and plan the perfect course of treatment.

This test is used to diagnose osteoporosis - a disorder characterised by decreased bone density. The results help know your bone density and take action if required.

This is an imaging test used to diagnose any changes or abnormalities in the bones and to determine whether breast or prostate cancer has travelled to the bones.

The process begins with a radioactive material being injected into the bloodstream and then allowed to move throughout the body for several hours. The results of a bone scan might also disclose information concerning a variety of other disorders, such as:

  • Arthritis
  • Avascular necrosis
  • Fibrous Dysplasia
  • Fractures
  • Bone cancers
  • Paget’s disease of the bone
