As you age, the chances that you'll experience osteoporosis and its crippling effects increase. A DEXA bone density test can let you know if you're at risk for reduced bone strength.
Concerned about developing osteoporosis? Norwalk Radiology & Mammography Center offers DEXA (dual energy fan beam x-ray absorptiometry) exams, which evaluates bone density in the spine and hips in just 15 minutes. The DEXA test is the most complete evaluation of a person’s bone density status, plus it minimizes radiation exposure and is less expensive than other methods. If the test shows you have low bone mineral content, you can work with your doctor to take steps now to increase your bone strength and reduce your risk of fracture.
