Bone Densitometry:

About Bone Densitometry:

Bone Densitometry is used to diagnose the density of bone for increased risk of fracture.  A very minimal amount of X-ray is used to scan the hip and lower back.  A Bone Density screening is suggested every 2 years. 

Before Your Exam:

There is no required preparation for a Bone Density.  Appointments are scheduled by your physician. For your convenience your Bone Density and Mammogram can be scheduled together.

During Your Exam:

The Bone Density scan is a very simple exam to acquire. The Densitometrist can explain the procedure and answer any questions you may have about this exam.

After Your Exam:

The Densitometrist will perform a computer analysis of your data. This analysis will then be reviewed by a Radiologist (a physician who specializes in diagnostic imaging). The results of your exam will be sent to your referring physician.
