Bone densitometry (performed by a specialist or consultant physician where the patient is referred by another medical practitioner), using dual energy X-ray absorptiometry, for:

.    the confirmation of a presumptive diagnosis of low bone mineral density made on the basis of 1 or more fractures     occurring after minimal trauma; or

.    for the monitoring of low bone mineral density proven by bone densitometry at least 12 months previously.

Measurement of 2 or more sites - 1 service only in a period of 24 months - including interpretation and report; not being a service associated with a service to which item 12309, 12312, 12315, 12318 or 12321 applies (Ministerial Determination)
