We perform Osteoporosis / Bone Mineral Density Scans or Dexa Scans here in our office. The Dexa Scan test is safe and painless, and it provides important information about your bone health. Your healthcare provider uses this information to make recommendations to help you protect your bones. A Dexa Scan is the only way to detect low bone density and diagnose osteoporosis. The National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF) recommends a Dexa Scan of the hip and spine by a central DXA machine to diagnose osteoporosis. Notify your provider for more information.
