Most women aged 67 or older who had normal T scores -- a measure of bone density -- were not likely to develop osteoporosis within 16 years, which suggest that they may not need to undergo bone-density screenings every two or three years, U.S. researchers found. Women with the lowest bone density scores should get screened annually and those with borderline low scores should undergo testing every five years, the researchers said.
