UNC School of Medicine’s Gourlay leads new study about bone density

A new study shows that older women with normal bone mineral density levels might not need screening again for 15 years.

The study was led by Dr. Margaret Gourlay of the UNC School of Medicine.

Gourlay said if a woman aged 67 or older has good bone density, testing her again in just two or three years is unlikely to produce new findings. Results were published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
