Bone Densitometry (DEXA) | Corridor Radiology

Eat right. Exercise. Get plenty of rest. Have your bone density tested? Absolutely! For men and women over the age of 50, managing bone health is as important as eating healthy food, exercising regularly, and getting enough sleep.

While family history, age and the sex of patients can increase the likelihood of developing osteoporosis and bone breaks, making healthier lifestyle choices and obtaining routine bone density exams today can help reduce the risk of painful fractures tomorrow.

Corridor Radiology encourages any patient over the age of 45 to come in for a preventative bone density screening. A Bone Mineral Density test uses an advanced machine to measure bone density. This test lets you know the amount of bone mineral you have within your bones. Bone density testing helps identify weaknesses and can be done on different bones including your hip, spine and arms or elsewhere in the body.

Your healthcare provider uses the information from a bone density scan to make recommendations to help protect your bones. This precise imaging exam is fast, painless and effective in determining your bone density levels. Our physicians at Corridor Radiology, together with your doctor, can help with the right steps to promote optimum bone health. Early detection is the best treatment, so ask your doctor about a bone mineral density test today.

Did you know that 1 in 2 women and 1 in 4 men over age 50 will break a bone due to osteoporosis? Preventing falls is important at any age, but especially for those who have osteoporosis because their bones are more fragile and easily broken.
