DEXA SCANS (BONE DENSITY)

DEXA stands for 'Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry'.
It is the most commonly used test for measuring density.
It is one of the most accurate ways to diagnosis
Osteopenia or Osteoporosis. This test is so accurate that
your follow up DEXA scan can be used to monitor your
treatment to learn if your plan is working.

DEXA Scans are used to measure bone mineral density
because they are more accurate than regular X-rays.
A person would need to lose 20-30% of their bone density
before it would show up on an X-ray.
