Bone Densitometry (DEXA)

The RP Eagle radiology team provides complete reading and interpretations of Bone Densitometry (DEXA) scans. DEXA stands for Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry.

DEXA scans produce a narrow, yet intense, beam of radiation which allows for the precise measurement of bone density. The test is painless and only requires the patient to lie down on the DEXA machine for a short time. A Bone Densitometry scan is the best way to detect osteoporosis in its early stages, allowing for more effective management and treatment.
