What is the BONE DEN./DEXA-THREE SITE Test?

A DEXA scan is an imaging test used to determine bone density (strength). 

Dual-Emission X-ray Absorptiometry (DEXA) measures the amount of calcium and other minerals in a bone fragment. Two X-ray beams with varying energies target the patient's bones. The absorption of each beam by the bone is used to determine BMD. DEXA can detect osteoporosis or risk of osteoporosis, reducing fracture risk.

Why Done? 

Any of the following risk factors may necessitate a DEXA scan:

  • Age: Many people lose bone mass as they age.
  • If you have osteoporosis or many fractures, you may be at risk for bone loss.
  • Injuries to the bones: Breaking a bone may indicate a higher risk, especially after age 50. Porosity makes bones more fragile.
  • Medications such as prednisone, cancer treatments, and post-transplant therapies might weaken bones.

Procedure: 

The lab Technician will give details.
