What is DEXA Imaging?
DEXA (dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry) is an imaging technique used to measure bone mineral density. DEXA scans are painless and noninvasive, using low-dose x-rays with different levels of energy to produce detailed images of the lumbar spine, wrist and hip. DEXA scans enable physicians to evaluate bone density, diagnose osteoporosis and predict risk of a fracture. DEXA scans are provided in our outpatient facility located at 10603 North Meridian Street.
