Assessment of Echographic Technology in Measuring Bone Health in the Clinical Setting

For limited time, we are offering new, affordable specialised ultrasound scan to determine your bone health. 

How? Measuring bone health by ultrasound employing echographic technology does not involve ionising radiation (employed in current method of assessing bone health), so medical referral not required.

Who? Scans offered to those exercisers, athletes and dancers attending EN:SPIRE clinic. Self-referral also welcome from all those with an interest in their bone health, men and women, all ages.

Why? Optimising bone health lowers risk of bone injuries, including fracture.

What? Bone health is to a large extent determined by lifestyle factors such as exercise and nutrition, which is under your control to modify.

What else? Scan results will be explained and discussed.

Appropriate blood tests also available via Forth with analysis at UK accredited laboratory and medical interpretation for an additional cost.
