Summary We investigated the reasons for referral of older Australians aged 70 years and older to dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). The most common clinical indication was being aged 70 years and older, followed by monitoring for fracture or low bone mineral density (BMD). Compared to males, females were twice as likely to have osteoporotic BMD.
