Bone Mineral Density Scan (BMD Scan)

Bone Mineral Density Scan (BMD Scan)

Bone density scanning, also called dual-energy X-Ray absorptiometry (DXA) or bone densitometry, utilizes an extremely small X-Ray dose to measure the bone strength and determine risk for fracture.

 

DXA is performed on the lower spine and one hip. The equipment at all Ontario Diagnostic Centre locations is state of the art and rapid. We make recommendations to the referring physicians on therapy and follow up of scan results.
