DEXA / Bone Densitometry

Osteoporosis Screening

A relatively quick and painless procedure, a DEXA scan evaluates bone density.  Our machine provides the latest technology in evaluating osteoporosis, or loss of bone density.  A bone density study can also provide an evaluation of early bone loss, known as osteopenia.  Bone loss can increase risk for fracture, so it is important to obtain your screening exam. 

Osteoporosis affects more than 50% of American women over the age of 50. There are an estimated 28 million people in the country with this disease. Osteoporosis related fractures and associated complications can be devastating. With our Lunar/GE Bone Densitometry, osteoporosis can be detected in the early stages
