Bone Density Test - DXA
PinnacleHealth Imaging uses the most advanced technology to provide comprehensive osteoporosis care, including screenings and DXA bone density tests.
Osteoporosis, a progressive condition that causes weakening of the bones, affects nearly half of all post-menopausal women and nearly one in three men over the age of 65.
Bone Density Tests
If you are at risk for osteoporosis, our imaging team will perform a bone density test using special X-ray technology called DXA (dual energy X-ray absorptiometry). The machine will scan your hip and spine to detect early loss of bone. The test is painless and takes approximately 20 minutes.
As part of our commitment to building a healthier community, PinnacleHealth Imaging offers free bone density heel or finger screenings at all outpatient imaging centers (except Silver Spring). Please call to find out times of availability at our locations nearest you for your free scan.
