MarinHealth Bone Density Testing

About This Location

About This Location

Dual energy x-ray absorptiometry, or DEXA, is a bone density test that uses a small amount of X-rays to measure how much calcium and other bone minerals are packed into an area of bone. This test determines if you are at risk of or have osteoporosis, a disease that naturally occurs as we age. Using this examination your physician can determine if you have bone loss and how it can best be curtailed. Bone Density Testing is geared towards MarinHealth patients who need extra bone monitoring due to a pre-existing condition or illness.
