Bone Density Scan (DEXA)

Osteoporosis is a debilitating disease that can lead to a fractured bone. More than 52 million Americans have low bone density and are at risk for osteoporosis. DEXA scans measure bone density. If a loss of bone mass is found, especially early, patients can receive treatment to prevent breakage and further loss.
