Dexa Scan

At CIFE we are committed to the prevention of bone fractures in our patients with osteopenia and osteoporosis. Our advanced technology bone density scanner (DEXA) is combined with the latest medical research developments in osteoporosis and osteopenia, along with lifestyle modifications, to ensure bone fracture prevention and effective treatment if necessary.

How does a DEXA scan work?

It is a quick painless noninvasive scan that sends very low dose X rays that are absorbed differently by bone and soft tissues of the body. Bone mineral density is then calculated based on the information provided by these X rays. This data along with your medical history is then used to calculate your fracture risk, and determine your specific treatment plan.
