Bone Density & Dexa Scanning

DXA scans are used primarily to evaluate bone mineral density.

Services provided by Southern Cross Medical Imaging

DEXA scans are primarily used to evaluate bone mineral density. DXA scans can also be used to measure total body composition, fat content and osteoporosis

DEXA bone densitometry is a simple, quick and non-invasive procedure. No anaesthesia is required.

The amount of radiation used is extremely small.

DEXA bone density testing is the most accurate method available for the diagnosis of osteoporosis and is also considered an accurate estimator of fracture risk. X-rays usually have no side effects in the diagnostic range.
