  • Bone Densitometry

    Osteoporosis, or porous bone, is a condition resulting from bones that have lost calcium and thickness. Because of the bones’ thinning, if you have osteoporosis, you’re at an increased risk for a break. It’s better to find out you have osteoporosis before a fracture or break occurs.

    Bone density tests are specialized, non-invasive tests using Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DEXA) that measures bone density in various places in the body.

    A bone density test can detect osteoporosis before a fracture occurs, predict your chances of fracturing in the future, determine your rate of bone loss, and monitor the effects of treatment. The test is painless. The only prep is to not take any multi-vitamin or calcium tablets eight hours before the test.
