The USPSTF (US Preventive Services Task Force) found good evidence that the risk for osteoporosis and fracture increases with age (and other factors). They also found that bone density measurements accurately predict the risk for fractures in the short-term and that treating asymptomatic women with osteoporosis reduces their risk for fracture. The benefits of screening and treatment are of at least moderate magnitude for women at increased risk by virtue of age or the presence of other risk factors. No recommendation has been made by the USPSTF for or against screening for osteoporosis in postmenopausal women younger than 60 or in women 60-64 who are not at increased risk for an osteoporotic fracture. The National Osteoporosis Foundation recommends a bone density screening for all women at 65 years and older regardless of their risk factors.
