In this method, the amount of bone mineral in every square centimeter is measured. It gains a relative measure of bone mineral density but does not measure the actual bone density. The indirect measurement of osteoporosis in patients is the clinical application of BMD. Bone densitometry is the method by which one can determine the hardness of the bones.
