DEXA Scan (Bone Density Scanning)
An enhanced form of low dose x-ray technology and is the gold standard for measuring the density of your bones. Bones densitometry is the test for evaluation of osteoporosis. The measurement of bone minerals is very closely related to bone strength and your likelihood for bone fractures. Here at NFCH, we scan your spine or hip in a private room. It is simple, painless and non-invasive procedure which takes about 15 minutes.
