Bone Densitometry (BMD) or DEXA scans are used to measure bone density. The departments uses GE Lunar Dpx machine for DEXA scans.
During this test, our technicians make use of a machine which measures the density of your bones in the hip, spine or any other part of the body. The results are expressed using T-scores which show whether your bone density is normal or below normal by comparing it with average peak bone density of a healthy, young adult.
A DEXA (DXA) scan is a quick and painless procedure that involves you being supine on the machine so the scanner can scan your body producing bone density levels. For bone density of your fore arms you will sit up and the forearms individually will be scanned. It takes 10 -15 minutes for the scan to be finished.Click Here To Inquire
