Private Osteoporosis Diagnosis

Our private osteoporosis diagnosis screening is designed to help you manage and treat osteoporosis early and reduce your risk of bone fractures. The diagnosis test takes place at our convenient central London location.

Osteoporosis Dexa Screening at 25 Harley Street

In many patients, it takes a broken bone to establish that they have osteoporosis, so this preventive test aims to identify your risk or early signs of osteoporosis, so that measures can be taken to prevent or slow the progression of the condition before any bones fracture.

To test for osteoporosis, you will have a DEXA scan at our imaging suite at 25 Harley Street. A DEXA scan uses low doses of X-ray to measure how dense your bones are and can identify if osteoporosis is present.

Early diagnosis will enable you to receive the correct treatment, which relieves symptoms and slows progression. By taking advantage of our osteoporosis test, you can gain peace of mind and take proactive steps to protect your bones, leading to a healthier and more active lifestyle.


How much does an Osteoporosis Diagnosis Test cost?

Our osteoporosis test costs £450, and this includes:

  • Risk factor questionnaire
  • DEXA scan at 25 Harley Street
  • Follow up consultation with  Professor Reid, one of the UK’s top osteoporosis experts

This is a discounted price, saving you £75.  If you were to book the scan and the consultation separately, the price would be £525.

Prior to your scan appointment, you will be sent a risk factor questionnaire to fill in, which will determine your risk of osteoporosis and will be used by your consultant when reviewing the results of your scan.

Your DEXA scan will take place at our dedicated DEXA imaging suite at 25 Harley Street.

Your follow-up consultation with our osteoporosis expert Professor David Reid MBE will take place either virtually or in-person depending on your preference. Professor Reid will go through your results with you and explain if osteoporosis is present or your risk of developing it. If required, he will create a treatment plan for you to help improve your bone health and slow the progression of osteoporosis.


Who is the Osteoporosis Screening for?

You might want to get an osteoporosis screening if you are concerned about your risk of osteoporosis. Several factors can increase your risk of developing osteoporosis, so it is worth getting checked if you:

  • Are over the age of 50
  • Are a woman who is menopausal or post-menopausal
  • Have family members with osteoporosis or who are prone to breaking bones
  • Smoke and/or drink a lot of alcohol
  • Have a low body weight
  • Get little/no physical activity
  • Don’t have much calcium or vitamin D in your diet

Good bone health is essential for overall health and well-being, and our osteoporosis diagnosis test can help you take steps towards stronger and healthier bones, leading to improved mobility, quality of life, and longevity
