DEXA

A Bone Mineral Density ( BMD) test can help your physician confirm a diagnosis of Osteoporosis. This is a low dose X-Ray that checks a part of your body such as your hand, foot, spine or hip for signs of bone thinning and mineral loss. It is a helpful aid for evaluating the probability of a fracture and whether or not any preventative treatment is needed. There is no prep for the Bone Density test except to remove any jewelry. You will lie on a cushioned table while the scanner passes over your body.
