Though osteoporosis is the most common metabolic bone disease in the Western world, many women do not appreciate the way in which it can affect their lives or what they can do to prevent it. Thus, it is the duty of the healthcare professional to provide the current state of knowledge. With enhanced figures and updated text, An Atlas of Osteoporosis, Second Edition provides a detailed account of the advances that have occurred in osteoporosis since the publication of the acclaimed first edition. Featuring over 70 informative and detailed illustrations, many in color, this comprehensive atlas covers the bone structure, epidemiology, pathophysiology, biochemical changes, and the latest methods for the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of osteoporosis, such as HRT, selective estrogen receptor modulators, calcitonin, bisphosphonates, anabolic steroids, fluoride, vitamin D, calcium, and exercise. It devotes special attention to the most common and most important type of osteoporosis- postmenopausal osteoporosis.

STATE-OF-THE-ART TECHNIQUES
Now defined as a disease of low bone density, osteoporosis can be diagnosed through bone densitometry. However, many physicians are still wary of tests that they did not study in medical school or during their early training. This volume covers the available investigative procedures, including double and single X-ray absorptiometry, assessment by computed tomography, nuclear magnetic resonance scanning, neutron activation analysis, and ultrasonography. It places them in their clinical context, reviews the tests, and will enhance the comfort level of any practicing physician with this investigation. The text also provides images surrounding the techniques of bone densitometry that demonstrate not only the techniques, but also the output from the techniques. The illustrations provided in An Atlas of Osteoporosis allow you to give the patient a simple explanation about the bone density test, its meaning, its interpretation, and its clinical utility.
