Researchers at Hadasit, the commercial arm of the Hadassah Hospital in Israel, have developed a low-cost test as an alternative to dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) for diagnosing osteoporosis. Although the cell culture procedure is lengthy (a complete diagnosis takes three weeks), it requires one-tenth of the initial investment of DXA and is thus suitable for poorer countries, says the institution.
