What is a Bone Density Scan (DXA)?
As we age, our bone structure may weaken. This is especially true in postmenopausal women. A Bone Density Scan, also called Dual-Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DXA), is a specialized X-ray test that uses a very small dose of ionizing radiation to provide information in order to measure bone loss. Its most common uses are to diagnose osteoporosis, to measure bone loss treatment results or to determine future risks for fractures.

I've been a patient of Fairfax Radiological Consultants for years. My most recent experience was pleasant. I had a Mammogram and bone density test done within the same day. The receptionist was very friendly, receptive and efficient, as were the technicians. The wait time was minimal. I hope to remain a patient with Fairfax Radiological Consultants and would highly recommend your services to anyone.
