DEXA - Bone Density Testing

(DEXA) BONE MINERAL DENSITY TEST NOW AVAILABLE IN OUR FAIRFIELD OFFICE

Osteoporosis is a disease in which the density and quality of bone is reduced, leading to weakness of the skeleton and increased risk of fracture, particularly of the spine, wrist, hip, pelvis, and shoulder. Osteoporosis and associated fractures are an important cause of mortality and morbidity.

OBGYN Associates, Inc. is pleased to offer bone mineral density testing in our Fairfield office. Dual energy x-ray absorptiometry, or DEXA, is a painless, touchless, and quick procedure that examines the hip and lower spine. The results can be a good predictor of fracture risk. There are several risk factors that your physician will consider in determining your risk. These include: family history, Caucasian or Asian descent, thin build, smoking, sedentary lifestyle, alcohol, and caffeine consumption. These test results can help your doctor decide if medication or lifestyle changes are needed now to rescue your “thinning” bones.
