At Canyon Vista Medical Center’s Carter Imaging Center we have a Discovery S/L DEXA Bone Density Scanner made by Hologic. DEXA stands for ‘Dual-emission X-ray absorptiometry’ and is the most accurate way to diagnosing diseases such as Osteoporosis or Osteopenia. This technology is much better at detecting bone density than a normal x-ray. It is the most commonly used test for measuring bone mineral density. The DEXA scan is a 5 minute procedure that could detect bone loss before it progresses.
