Dexa Scan in McConnellsburg, Pennsylvania

DEXA Scan: Testing your bone density -- how strong your bones are -- is the only way to know for sure if you have osteoporosis. One common test doctors use is called dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA or DEXA).

DEXA scanning focuses on two main areas -- the hip and the spine. If you can’t test those, you can get a DEXA scan on your forearm. These areas can give your doctor a good idea of whether you’re likely to get fractures in other bones in your body.
