The bone densitometer measures the bone mineral content and density of specific bone sites, mainly the hip and spine, that are most susceptible to fracture due to osteoporosis and other degenerative bone diseases.
The prevalence of these diseases, especially in post-menopausal women, makes bone densitometry a necessary part of a complete bone health program for women.
Our state-of-the-art General Electric DEXA ProdigyTM bone densitometer can improve the early detection and treatment of osteoporosis.
Bone density testing is fast and painless. It requires no injections or invasive procedures. The entire test normally takes only minutes to complete. A physician referral is required.
