DXA Bone Densitometry:


A bone density test determines if you have osteoporosis — a disorder that causes bones to be more fragile and more likely to break. In the past, osteoporosis would be suspected only after you broke a bone. By that time, however, your bones could be quite weak. A bone density test can help in calculating your risk of osteoporosis.

A bone density test uses X-rays to measure bone mineral density. The bones that are most commonly tested are in the spine, hip and sometimes the forearm.

Show up for your appointment on time, wearing comfortable clothes with minimal metal. You will lie down and relax on our scanner for about 10 minutes.
