What is a Dexa scan or bone density test?

Dexa scan or bone mineral density test (BMD Test) is used to check the strength of the bones. Your doctor will prescribe this test when she has a reason to believe that your bone density may be lower than what is expected of someone with your age and gender.

There could be multiple reasons that cause the bone density to reduce. Some reasons are lack of vitamin D in the body, after-effects of cancer treatment, the side-effect of certain medications, etc.

What are the risk factors of low bone density?

As we age, our bones tend to lose their mass which is a natural process. In other words, the bone mass of people above 50 years of age will be lower than those of 30 years.

How is the procedure performed?

You should lie down on a table attached to the imaging arm. Then the imaging arm moves slowly over the body part that is being examined. During this, a beam of low dosage energy will be passed into your body to capture the images of the bones. The scan will provide the details of the density of your bone.

Usually, it will take about 20 minutes to complete the entire procedure.

What are the risks involved in a Dexa scan?

Dexa scan uses a minimal amount of radiation to examine your bone mass which is not harmful. But there is a risk of developing cancer if you take the Dexa scan more often.

Other than this there are no risks or complications in a Dexa scan.
