Dexa BMD is the "Gold Standard" for Diagnosis of Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a degenerative disease that results in severe bone loss thereby greatly increasing the chances of a fracture.

The Dexa Bone Densitometer is a sophisticated equipment that enables doctors to detect and treat bone loss at an early stage itself. It measures the bone mineral density safely, accurately and painlessly. At HSC Medical Center , one can avail of the Dexa Bone Densitometer, which is the 'Gold Standard' in detecting osteoporosis.

Dexa Bone Densitometer allows comparison between the present and previous result. No preparation is required in the procedure except remove all metal/jewelry/accessories from the scan region.

The risk factors indicating diagnostic use of Bone Densitometry

  • Oestrogen deficiency - premature menopause (<45 years) / Prolonged secondary Amenorrhoea > 1 year (no menses).
  • Corticosteroid therapy.
  • Maternal family history of hip fracture.
  • Low body mass index (<19 kg/m2).
  • Radiographic evidence of Osteoporosis and/or vertebral deformity.
  • Previous fragility fracture, particularly of the hip/spine.
  • Loss of height, thoracic kyphosis.
  • If you have total hip replacement or spine implant, alternative bony structure will be scanned.
