Osteoporosis Screening


Our bone densitometry equipment enables us to assist in the diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis. Osteoporosis used to be considered an inevitable consequence of aging. Today, with new techniques for early detection and increasing treatment options, osteoporosis management has become a routine. Please ask your doctor if bone density measurement may be appropriate for you.

Osteoporosis DXA Screening Scans:

  • Only seen at University-level centers of care
  • Full body scanning for adults, juveniles and children as well as whole body fat composition imaging

Body composition measurement with DXA can look beyond weight and traditional body mass index (BMI) to determine body fat distribution – an important risk factor in a variety of serious diseases. Information from DXA exams can prove valuable in conditions such as:

  • Obesity
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Anorexia nervosa
  • Chronic renal failure
  • Wasting syndrome (caused by HIV/Aids)
