When older women fracture a hip, they usually don’t get a bone density test that shows whether they need treatment to help prevent more broken bones. According to a new study, just 17 percent of women get tested for osteoporosis or receive treatment for the condition. This is unfortunate, since osteoporosis screening helps identify women at risk for future fractures.
