The Bone Mineral Densitometry (BMD) Lab was established in 1985 and was the first centre in Singapore to establish normative bone mineral density data for the local population. The lab is equipped with two dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) densitometers, a Norland XR-46 and Hologic Discovery Wi, with capabilities for spine, hip, whole body and forearm scans. The Hologic Discovery Wi has additional software for hip structural analysis, vertebral fracture assessment and FRAX 10-year fracture risk calculator.
