DEXA For Bone Density

CT scanning, sometimes called CAT scanning, is a painless X-ray test that helps clinicians diagnose and treat medical conditions. CT imaging uses special X-ray equipment to produce a number of images of the inside of the body.

A computer then processes them to produce cross-sectional pictures of the area being studied. CT scans provide greater clarity than conventional X-ray exams and allow doctors to see organs and soft tissues as well as bones.

DEXA for Body Composition

DEXA (DXA) is short for dual energy X-ray absorptiometry. DEXA scanning is used by doctors to test bone density, an important factor when it comes to diagnosing osteoporosis and assessing bone health.
