Evaluates the quality of the information content on bone-mineral density (BMD) testing posted on consumer health websites (CHWS). Finds that: the majority of CHWS identified by popular search engines do not disclose the limited capacity of BMD to discriminate between low-risk individuals and those who will suffer future fractures; CHWS generally present BMD testing as quick, painless, noninvasive, and as being recommended, based on risk factors that are widespread among the general public; BMD testing information is prominently paired on CHWS sites with information on osteoporosis, with an emphasis on "silent disease" and the devastating consequences of advanced disease; sponsors of CHWS sites are frequently either providers of BMD testing or companion drugs, and consequently in a position of conflict of interest with regard to decisions to undergo BMD testing; and, HTA organizations have no documented conflict of interest, nor do they invoke emotional arguments-their approach is to emphasize the effects of testing on populations, on the basis of referenced research findings. Concludes that: content analysis demonstrates the omissions and divergence of information on BMD testing available to consumers on the Internet, as compared with HTA reports; the content of HTA reports has undergone rigorous systematic and peer review-therefore, their findings may be useful to consumers; this information is not generally accessible to patients using the most popular Internet search engines; and, inaccurate and incomplete information may cause harm by deflecting patients from optimal decisions.
