Bone Densitometry

Bone Densitometry which is also known as Dual-Energy X-Ray Absorption or DEXA is a useful tool to help your doctor determine thickness of your bones. This type of test is used to measure changes in bone density by using small amounts of radiation to measure bone density.

This painless test helps your doctor to monitor, diagnose, and treat osteopenia or osteoporosis, as well as other diseases affecting the bones or bone structure.

A bone densitometry exam is more precise than x ray’s and can help to diagnose bone loss earlier.
