Bone Density Test

About Our Service

This painless, non-invasive and safe test is used to measure bone mineral content and density. The gold standard for this test is the DEXA, or dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry. For the test, photons are beamed below you. At the same time, an X-ray above you measures how many photons are stopped by your bones. The results show whether your bone mass is decreasing, and if so, how fast. We offer this superior technology to help you stay strong.

Why take the test? Bone density peaks in your early twenties. From there on, you must take an increasing role to maintain sufficient calcium and minerals for bone health. If you aren't proactive (and especially if you're a female) bones will weaken. This leads to osteoporosis, where brittle bones can break even with a sneeze. Periodic bone density testing is the only way to ensure strong bones throughout your future.

Together, we can help you prevent future fractures and maintain bone health. Schedule your test; we'll do the rest.
