Dexa Screenings


Osteoporosis is a crippling disease characterized by the loss of bone tissue and a susceptibility to fractures. It afflicts an estimated 25 million Americans, 80% of whom are women.

Depending on your family history, fracture risk, medications, or other health issues, your health care provider may recommend you schedule a Dexa screening.

A Dexa is done in areas of the hip and spine--areas that could alter your life if you were to fracture. It safely, accurately and painlessly measures bone density and the mineral content of bone. The patient lies comfortably on a padded table, fully clothed, while the Dexa unit scans the spine and hip. A Dexa is a non-invasive procedure, involves no injections, and takes approximately 10-15 minutes.
