DEXA (Bone Density)


DEXA (Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry) measures bone density. A DEXA scan is safe and painless. It typically takes 10-20 minutes, and minimal radiation is used to determine the bone density of the spine, hip or wrist.

Its results are reproducible, so measurements can be taken over time to show the progression of disease or improvement in bone density with treatment.
