Is screening indicated for osteoporosis in postmenopausal women?
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Screening for osteoporosis is indicated in women 65 years of age and older and in women younger than 65 with a fracture risk equal to or greater than that of a 65-year-old woman with no risk factors (SOR: B, evidence-based guideline). Screening women starting at age 65 is cost effective (SOR: B, economic analysis).
