Our DXA Services
We offer DXA scans from a range of locations to both NHS and Private Patients.
A DXA scan is used to measure the bone mineral density of a patient.
These scans are often used to identify patients suffering with osteoporosis and are effective for both sexes and all ages.
Our team are experts in their field, with all of our scans being reported by specialist Clinicians and reporting Radiographers.
About DXA Scans
A DXA scan (sometimes referred to as a Dexa scan) is a type of X-ray. These scans are more effective than a standard X-ray at measuring low bone mineral density.
During a scan, X-rays are passed through the body and are absorbed by bone and soft tissue. Detectors measure how much radiation passes through the bone, allowing the Radiologist to see the density.
