Caption: Osteoporosis bone scanning. A young black male lies under an X-ray machine in a check for early signs of the bone disease osteoporosis. He is lying on top of a cassette containing the special film that produces the X-ray image. Victims of osteoporosis suffer from brittle, easily fractured bones. The disease is caused by loss of the protein tissue inside bones, and is usually diagnosed by X-ray. Osteoporosis is very common in post-menopausal women and the elderly, but is less common in blacks than in whites. The only treatment is preventive as is no cure.
