Dual X-Ray Absorpitrometry (Dexascan)

A DEXA scan (Dual X-ray Absorptiometry) determines the bone mineral density (BMD) of a patient's spine or extremities. This is performed to detect the early stage of/or the existence of osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a progressive bone disease that decreases bone density to the point where bones can fracture easily and abnormally. DEXA Scans (or DXA scans) are also utilized to measure the total body composition and fat content of a patient with a high degree of accuracy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will I be enclosed in a tube like an MRI?

No. You will be lying comfortably on your back and a small sensor will pass over your lower spine and left hip.

How often should I have this done? Every year or two years?

We recommend that patients receive a DEXA scan at least every two years. In certain situations, such as patients taking Fosomax, it may be appropriate to have an annual study.
