Bone Density Scan (DEXA)

Bone densitometry, also called dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry, or DEXA, measures bone loss using a very small dose of ionizing radiation to produce pictures of the inside of the body. Dexa testing is currently the best standardized method available to diagnose osteoporosis and is also considered an accurate estimator of fracture risk. With our machine we can screen, diagnose, and/or monitor female and male bone health as well as calculate Total Body Composition (BMI).
