Understand what osteoporosis is and how it develops.

This event will include a demonstration of the quick, safe, simple and painless EchoS scanning process. The talk will be delivered by Nick Birch, Consultant Orthopaedic Spinal Specialist.

Tickets to the Educational Talk are £15 and numbers are limited. Call Jayne on 07805 039 099  to book your place.  If you attend the talk and subsequently book yourself in for a scan, the cost of your ticket can be offset against the deposit payment for the scan.

SCANNING CLINIC – Friday, 12thJune 10.30am to 4pm

EchoS is a radiation-free, diagnostic scanning device developed in Italy which gives access to earlier measurement of bone mineral density than DEXA, with immediate, easy-to understand results, including your Z-score and T-score. Results are used, with otherparameters, to calculate your FRAX score – an accurate prediction of your 10 year probability of suffering a major osteoporotic fracture.

The 30 min appointments will be conducted by Nick Birch. Both your lumbar spine and hip will be scanned. Full results of the scan will be discussed and advice given which is personalised and tailored to your needs.

Scan fee £150. A non-refundable deposit of £25.00 secures your appointment, call us now. Balance payment is due a week before the appointment. 

CAN’T MAKE THESE DATES? We are planning to run a repeat of the scanning clinic in October – details yet to be confirmed, and will arrange other dates for a repeat of the educational talk.  Nick Birch offers clinics in other locations at other times – look at the Osteoscan UK website for further information.
