Background: Osteoporosis is one of the most common problems in the women, especially after menopause and at the old age. Bone densitometry of vertebrae of lumbar region and femoral neck is a non invasive and precise method for evaluation of bone mass density (BMD) and determination of fracture risk. Materials and Method: from different districts of Ahvaz city, more than 300 healthy men and woman were selected. They were referred to the center of bone densitometry after ruling out underlying diseases. BMD evaluation was done with LUNAR apparatus. Results: There was a meaningful difference between BMD of men and women. There was also a meaningful difference among women groups regarding LUNAR standard. But this was not the case in the men. Conclusion: It was concluded that there is a meaningful difference between the mean of BMD in the femoral neck and lumbar region. In addition there was a difference between these two regions in women (not men) and lunar standard.
