Benefits of DXA - Bone Density

Bone density testing is often performed to help determine if a patient is at increased risk of osteoporosis, a disease that causes bones to become more fragile and likely to break. Dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) is the most accurate test available to measure bone density. This test is fast and painless and is often performed as a screening test. Your physician will be able to discuss the benefits of this screening test with you.
