What can I expect during the exam?

There are different methods of determining bone density. Peninsula Imaging utilizes DEXA scanning (Dual-Energy X-ray Absorptiometry) which is considered to be the best method available. The DEXA examination takes about 30 minutes. The patient rests, without moving, on a padded table while a small arm-like device passes over the patient. It is important that you remain as still as possible during the procedure to ensure a clear and useful image.

In the event we can not do a hip or spine (surgery), we will perform a forearm of the non-dominent side.
