Bone Densitometry DEXA

Bone Densitometry (DEXA): Screening for Bone Loss or Osteoporosis

What is Bone Densitometry (DEXA)?

Bone densitometry uses medical images to evaluate the density of bone—meaning the weight of tissue in a given unit of bone (grams per centimeter, for example). Below-normal bone density can indicate problems such as calcium loss from osteoporosis, a condition most common in women after menopause, but that also sometimes affects men or younger women.

RMI offers a state-of-the-art method of bone densitometry called DEXA, which uses an advanced form of X-ray technology that provides information about the thickness of bones by measuring their absorption of the X-rays.
