DXA Scans for Women and Men at Magee-Womens Imaging
A dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) scan is a noninvasive procedure that measures bone density, as well as mineral content in other parts of the body.
It is the most accurate scan for diagnosing:
- The first stages of bone loss (osteopenia)
- The thinning of bones that can lead to bone fractures in aging men and women
Board-certified experts at Magee-Womens Imaging interpret your scans and work with your doctor to determine an accurate diagnosis and develop a treatment plan.
