What does a DEXA SCAN determine?
A DEXA scan is used specifically to assess a patient’s risk of fracture by detecting osteoporosis of the vertebral bodies, which is a thinning of the bones as we age and a possible source of back pain. The scan is a reliable test to determine early stages of bone loss associated with osteoporosis.
Bone density is strongly recommended if you:
are a post-menopausal woman and not taking estrogen.
have a personal or maternal history of hip fracture or smoking.
are a post-menopausal woman who is tall (over 5 feet 7 inches) or thin (less than 125 pounds).
are a man with clinical conditions associated with bones loss.
It is important to have your bone density testing done every two years at the same facility to ensure accurate comparisons.
