Screen for osteoporosis and colon cancer - at the same time?

Found these links in the Endocrine Daily briefing from the Endocrine Society. Interesting pair of news articles describes how CT colonography can also be used to measure bone density.

"The results of the study on 35 people showed the data from the CT colonography images agreed with the subject's DEXA bone mineral density scores normally used to check for osteoporosis."
