BMD (Bone Mineral Densitometry) also known as DEXA (dual energy X-ray absorptiometry) is a test used to measure bone mineral density; it is commonly used to screen osteoporosis or metabolic diseases affecting the skeleton and screen for fracture risk
How does it work?
It is just like having an x-ray but with lesser radiation. You will then be asked to lie down and be positioned accordingly. Once scanning starts, low dose of X-radiation is produced and once finished, all images will be analyze and be process to achieve the result.
