DEXA (Bone Density DEXA)

Bone Density Testing Near Me

Bone density scan is used in measuring bone mineral content of specific body areas. Our fan beam technology even examines the spine and both hips. The bone mineral density,or BMD, is then analyzed to check if there is a risk of fractures. Low bone density caused by osteoporosis results in brittle bones and is easily fractured.

Bone Density Importance

It’s all about dedication to the fight against osteoporosis! A bone density test is a way to measure the strength of your bones and to analyze your risk of fractures. Strong bones are critical for supporting the body and a healthy range of movement.

Osteoporosis refers to spongy or porous bones. In this illness, bones become fragile and appear like a coral or porous which are more vulnerable to fractures. Osteoporosis is at times referred to as a ‘silent killer’ since there is no symptoms sometimes. This exam is the most accurate means to determine hip or spine fracture risks associated with aging.

Optimal health depends on accurate diagnosis and preventive treatment. That’s why so many professionals around the globe rely on Prodigy™ for bone mineral density (BMD).

Prodigy delivers reliable dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) with excellent precision and extremely low radiation dose. Compared to other x-ray procedures, the radiation dose from DXA assessments is relatively low. DXA technology requires minimal radiation to generate measurements of body composition. However, when compared to other manufacturers of DXA devices, GE Lunar DXA densitometers perform scans at a lower dose, while still achieving higher precision.

Bone Density Test Safety

Bone Density test applies minimal radiation only. Thus, it is relatively safer than a regular chest x-ray test.

Bone Density Test Pain

Bone Density test is not painful. During the process, you are to lie down on the table. The equipment’s hand will simply pass over your body and it’s done. There is no pain associated with the test. The computer merely measures your BMD. A radiologist will then analyze the results and create a report. The report will then be discussed with you by your doctor in a few days.
