DEXA Bone Densitometry

The CMC Nuclear Medicine Section houses the Lunar Dexa Bone Densitometry. DEXA stands for Dual Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry.

Understanding Osteoperosis

Bones go through a constant state of loss and regrowth. As a person ages, more loss than growth can occur. The bones then become thin and fragile and can easily break.

While a small amount of bone loss is normal in all men and women after age 35, osteoporosis poses special threat to women.

We hope this brochure will help you understand osteoporosis a little bit more and lead the way to early detection.

What is Bone Densitometry?

Bone Densitometry is an essential tool in the diagnosis and management of osteoporosis. It is a safe and painless procedure which measures bone mass or the amount of minerals in the bone.

DEXA Bone Densitometry

DEXA Technology is widely considered the Gold standard for bone densitometry because of its:

  1. Accuracy
  2. Speed
  3. Low dose radiation
  4. High Image Quality and
  5. Versatility - ability to measure bone mass density and percent body fat
