Our office is equipped with a state-of-the-art bone density scanner. Commonly referred to as DEXA scans, bone density scans use x-ray technology to measure bone loss, or bone mineral density.
This device helps our physicians detect conditions including osteoporosis in adults, and low bone mass in children.
The bone density exam takes around 20 minutes and does not require patients to undress or prepare. Results are read by a physician and our findings are often made available to patients within a few weeks.
