A bone density test (DEXA) measures how strong your bones are and can effectively predict your future risk of a fracture.
This quick and painless procedure provides precise measurements of bone mineral content at important bone sites, such as the hips and spine.
The information gathered from your DEXA can help you and your doctor decide if medication is needed to reduce the risk of a fracture. Bone density testing done during treatment also will help monitor the effects of your treatment.
Physician referral is required.
