Sahara Heel Scan

Sahara Heel Scan

The Sahara bone sonometer is a type of ultrasound used to determine a patient’s risk for osteoporosis. It measures the bone mineral density in the heel. The heel bone is similar to the hip bone, one of the bones that breaks most often. The test determines risk of bone fracture by comparing the patient’s bone density to the bone density of a healthy young adult. The Sahara heel scan does not involve any radiation exposure. It is often used to determine who needs further evaluation and testing.
