Bone Densitometry (DEXA)
Bone Densitometry, also known as DEXA, takes x-rays of the hip and/or spine to calculate the density of bones and determine whether osteoporosis is present.
The study of moving body structures–similar to an X-ray “movie.” A continuous X-ray beam is passed through the body part being examined. The beam is transmitted to a TV-like monitor so that the body part and its motion can be seen in detail.
Contrast material is injected into the joint under x-ray guidance after which images are taken with x-ray and MRI or CT to diagnose any abnormalities.
