Bone Density Testing

A bone density test is called a DXA or DEXA scan. This is not the same as a bone scan. A bone density test uses a small amount of x-ray to measure the amount of mineral in the bones of your lower back, hip or sometimes the forearm. It gives an indication of the fragility of the bone and its risk to fracture.
