Bone Density

Bone density test Birmingham ALThe bone density test procedure is an enhanced form of x-ray called Dual-Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry (DEXA). The procedure is a quick, painless method of measuring bone loss to screen for osteoporosis. A DEXA scan lasts about 10 minutes, and exposes the patient to less radiation than a standard chest x-ray. At Henderson & Walton Women’s Center, we can perform your bone density test at the office and most days the procedure can be scheduled with your office visit.
