What is a DEXA Scan?
Simply put, DEXA scan is short for Dual X-ray Absorptiometry scan. It is the current industry standard for measuring bone mineral density, or BMD for short. This is a tool that helps your doctor measure your BMD and determine if there is a need to improve your overall bone health. If you have been seen in our bone health clinic, it is likely you have had a DEXA scan before. If not, this blog will teach you a bit about the test, and why you should be interested in knowing about your bone health.
