Bone Densitometry is a simple, painless, non-invasive test that takes about 15 minutes. A DEXA (Dual Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry) scanner is used to provide information
regarding your bone mineral density (BMD). By comparing your test results to a local database, healthcare providers can estimate bone strength and predict the risk for fractures.
DEXA is most often used to diagnose osteoporosis, a condition that often affects women after menopause but may also be found in men.
