Abstract : .Background : Bone Mineral Density (BMD), which uses a specialized scan to measure the density of minerals present in bones, can be measured using Body Mass Index (BMI), which is a good indicator. The aim of this study to predict the BMD based on body parameters such as BMI , height and age . Method and Results a retrospective study were conducted at King Abdullah Bin Abdul-Aziz hospital university between May 2022 and August 2022. Seventy patients were selected based on the selection criteria. DEXA scan done for hip joints and lumber spine .The data was coded and analyzed using SPSS version 26 , DEXA results are obtained in T & Z score , the study found 70 patients comprised 82.9% (n=58) female and 17.1% (n=12) male .The descriptive statistical evaluation results showed that the mean age of the patients was 61.31(±12.30) years and observed mean BMI was 29.98 (±6.92) kg/m2 ,this study found that had linear regression relation between T and Z score of hip joints and spine and patients BMI ( P < 0.0001) also showed that had linear relation between Z & T of spine score and patients height and age respectively. Conclusion This study concluded that can predict the Z & T score of hip joints and spine from patient’s body parameters such as BMI ,age and height
