Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia offers state-of-the-art bone density tests (called "DEXA" scans) to evaluate patients for osteoporosis. DEXA (dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry) are considered the gold standard for measuring bone density and are the most accurate way to diagnose osteoporosis.
DEXA scanning is fast and painless. During the procedure, the patient lies on a padded table while the scanning of the forearm, one hip and the spine is completed. The entire procedure takes less than a half hour. The amount of radiation is much less than a chest or dental X-ray. No preparation is needed, though we ask that the patient not take calcium pills the day of the exam.
