Experts say that older women should have regular bone density tests to screen for osteoporosis. But it’s been unclear how often to repeat the tests. A new study suggests that women with healthy bone density on their first test might wait 15 years before getting rescreened.

Interesting! I get a bone density test every 2 years since I am at risk for osteoporosis.
