From the reviews:

“This is a beautifully put together book that covers all of the most important aspects of bone densitometry. Each chapter examines an aspect of osteoporosis in detail and in an easy to read format. The illustrations used throughout are good quality and reflect their intention. Each chapter can be read as a standalone unit which makes the book very versatile. … Overall this is a very convenient text as it brings together all aspects of osteoporosis, not just measuring bone density.” (Angela Wood, RAD Magazine, January, 2014)
