Bone Density Test

What is Dual Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry or DEXA?

One of the most significant advances in the measurement of bone mass has been the development of DEXA. Extremely sensitive, this procedure can detect small changes in bone mass and can help diagnose osteoporosis at its earliest stages, when treatment is most effective. DEXA is non-invasive, safe, fast and painless – a very simple procedure for patients. DEXA is considered the gold standard of bone density measurement.
