Bone Density Scan

Monitoring your bone health has never been easier

Bone Density Testing at Anna Jaques Hospital

Some conditions cause bones to weaken over time. However, we can’t always tell when bones become weak.

That’s why the orthopedic and radiology specialists at Anna Jaques Hospital provide bone density tests like bone densitometry or dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) scans. Bone density tests are a specialized imaging scan that measures the strength of your bones. These tests can detect bone conditions early. This tool gives you the chance to take preventive measures or get treatment if needed.

Bone Density Testing and Osteoporosis

Doctors commonly use bone density tests to diagnose osteoporosis. Osteoporosis weakens bones and can cause fractures that limit your ability to move and be independent. Bone density testing can detect the condition before you have osteoporosis symptoms or a fracture. This test also can help monitor osteoporosis treatment.

Once your scan is complete, our specialists will use the bone density test results to create an individualized treatment plan to optimize your bone health.
