Bone Densitometry

Dual-Energy Absorptiometry (DEXA)

A DEXA Scan is the most accurate test for diagnosing Osteoporosis, or “porous bones". Osteoporosis is a disease where the bones lose density which can lead to fractures, pain, and deformities. You may not even notice you have it until you receive a painful fracture, so early detection is important.
