DEXA BONE DENSITY
A Bone Density Scan is a simple and non-invasive procedure that is used to measure bone mass and assist in the diagnosis of osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a disorder of the bones characterized by a progressive loss of bone tissue, which can result in an increase in the risk of fractures.
By utilizing a very low dose of X-Rays, the Bone Densitometry machine produces an image of your bones and calculates the strength of the bones.
The test is painless and simple to conduct and has minimal radiation exposure.
Independent Imaging uses The GE Lunar Prodigy Densitomer to provide precise information that can help identify patients at risk for osteoporosis and osteoporotic fractures.
