Also known as: Bone densitometry

Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiomentry (DEXA) scans are the most commonly used tests for measuring bone mineral density. It is one of the most accurate ways to diagnosis osteopenia, a condition where bone mineral density is lower than normal, or osteoporosis, a disease where bone mineral density is reduced, and leads to an increased risk of fracture.
