A bone density scan (DXA) is the most common scan used to measure bone density. It is a painless procedure that exposes patients to minimal radiation. The scan usually takes 10 to 20 minutes. The DXA results enable the doctor to evaluate the bone mineral (calcium) content of the bone. The amount of calcium correlates with bone strength. A bone density scan can help us evaluate patients that are at risk for osteoporosis or osteopenia. Both of our offices are equipped with DXA machines.
