Were you looking for information about Osteoporosis? Osteoporoses is a common misspelling of osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis is a type of bone disease that can affect men or women. This disease occurs when the bone is lost faster than the body can replace it, resulting in fragile bones that are more susceptible to fractures. Although osteoporosis can affect any bone in the body, it is more likely to occur in the spine, hip, and wrist. Because routine x-rays are unable to detect the disease until it is advanced, the most common test used for diagnosing it is a bone mineral density test known as dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA scan).
