Are there any health risks from having a DEXA scan?
The examination uses a small amount of radiation, less than one-tenth the dose of a standard chest x-ray and less than a day's exposure to natural radiation. It is considered safe and will not result in side effects. There are no injections. If you are or think you may be pregnant, please inform the technologist.
