Bone Density Exams Now Offered in Pocomoke
Residents in Pocomoke and the surrounding area no longer have to drive
the 30 miles to Berlin for a bone density exam. In another effort to increase
access to quality healthcare services in the community, Atlantic General
Hospital and Health System has brought bone densitometry to southern Worcester County.
Osteoporosis is one of the most critical aspects of women’s health,
particularly in later years. As with most health conditions, prevention
and early detection are crucial. Bone density exams provide physicians
with valuable information to assess a woman’s risk of osteoporosis
or determine the best treatment for a current condition. The procedure
is quick and painless and takes only minutes.
The Pocomoke Imaging Center on 500 Market Street Exchange is now taking
appointments for each Wednesday. For more information or an appointment,
please call 410-957-1311.
