At Quantum Radiology we have invested in advanced DEXA scanning equipment. We offer research grade image resolution and precision, coupled with innovation to cater not only for today’s needs but also your future needs via our enduring platform.

What is DEXA?

Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) is a means of measuring bone mineral density (BMD). DEXA is the most widely used and most thoroughly studied bone density measurement technology. The DEXA scan is typically used to diagnose and follow osteoporosis.

Is there any Preparation Involved?

There is no special preparation required for DEXA scans. Upon arrival you may be asked by the radiographer to change into a gown before your examination. You may also be asked to remove jewellery, eyeglasses, or any metal objects that may obscure the images.

Your Safety

You will be exposed to a very small amount of radiation when you receive a DEXA scan. At Quantum Radiology, we use the most advanced DEXA scanning equipment to ensure you are exposed to the minimum amount of radiation needed to obtain adequate images.

If you are pregnant or suspect that you may be, please advise our staff before the test is performed, as special precautions may have to be taken.
