Pharmacies as low-threshold locations offer a suitable place for osteoporosis screening and other health services. Farmacia Falqui in Genova, Italy and Farmacia Soliani in Modena, Italy offer OsCare Sono® osteoporosis screening service for their customers. Pharmacy directors Dr. Falqui and Dr. Salardi find that the OsCare Sono® measurement is quick and safe and functions well as a screening procedure. If the customer is found to have low bone strength values, he or she is advised to contact his or her family doctor. The doctor can then decide on a further dual energy X-ray test, the test used in diagnosing osteoporosis. According to the directors, providing the OsCare Sono® screening service attracts customers and provides the opportunity to offer them bone health supplements.
