Bone densitometry works similar to X-ray—allowing a physician to quickly and accurately measure the density of your bones and diagnose if you have osteopenia or osteoporosis.

Our highly advanced system is so accurate, it helps us find even the smallest abnormalities in bone. What more, this state-of-the-art equipment allows us to perform a scan in only 15 minutes.

All of our bone densitometry tests are performed by certified technologists, then reviewed by radiologists who specialize in this type of imaging.
