The Dual-energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DXA) test is the most highly developed and validated technique for evaluating bone mineral density according to the World Health Organization's report on preventing osteoporosis.
The DXA can help in the diagnosis of osteoporosis, the prediction of fractures, and monitoring of your response to treatments using a bone densitometer to gauge bone mineral density (BMD).
Your BMD is directly related to your bone density. By using small amounts of x-rays, we'll measure your BMD and produce images of your spine, hip, or even your whole body.
The bone densitometry test will compare your bone density to that of a young adult at peak bone strength (T-score.) Based on your T-score, the World Health Organization has developed categories to define your bone loss.
Osteopenia (low bone mass)
-1 to -2.5
Your T-score, combined with other risk factors, will enable your doctor to estimate your risks of hip fractures and other osteoporosis-related injuries within the next 10 years.
This information will help your doctor determine the best course of treatment based on your current bone density. Follow-up tests may be requested to detect change in your bones over time.
