Bone Density

Bone density test is a means of measuring bone mineral density (BMD). Bone Density/DEXA (Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry)is the most widely used and most thoroughly studied bone density measurement technology. It can provide indications of osteopenia or osteoporosis.

How long does it take?

Scanning can take up to 20 minutes.

Do I need an appointment?

DEXAs can be performed on a walk-in basis, however it is recommended to make a booking in order to minimise waiting times.
