BUT BEFORE I CONTINUE IS ANYONE ASKING THE QUESTION I’M ASKING???
What is a DXA | DEXA ?
DXA stands for ‘dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry’. DXA (also sometimes known as DEXA) is a test that measures the density of bones. Density means how much of something there is in a certain amount of space. The denser the tissue, the less X-rays pass through. Air and water are less dense than solid things such as bone. This is because the particles which make air and water are not held closely together. In general, the more dense the bone, the stronger it is, and the less likely it is to break (fracture).
There are two different types of DXA scanning devices:
- Central DXA devices are large machines that can measure bone density in the centre of your skeleton, such as your hip and spine.
- Peripheral DXA devices are smaller, portable machines that are used to measure bone density on the periphery of your skeleton, such as your wrist, heel or finger. These are mainly to get an idea about whether further tests are needed, as they are not as accurate as the larger DXA machines.
How does a DXA scan work?
A DXA scan uses low-energy X-rays. A machine sends X-rays from two different sources through the bone being tested. Bone blocks a certain amount of the X-rays. The more dense the bone is, the less X-rays get through to the detector. By using two different X-ray sources rather than one it greatly improves the accuracy in measuring the bone density.
The amount of X-rays that comes through the bone from each of the two X-ray sources is measured by a detector. This information is sent to a computer which calculates a score of the average density of the bone. A low score indicates that the bone is less dense than it should be, some material of the bone has been lost and it is more prone to fracture.
How is a DXA scan done?
You lie on your back on a couch and are asked to keep still while an X-ray detector (the ‘scanner’) comes over the area to be tested. An X-ray machine fires X-rays towards the detector. The bones commonly scanned are the bones of the back (the vertebrae), hip and wrist. The scan usually takes between 5 and 20 minutes, depending on which part of your body is being examined and whether a central or peripheral scanner is being used. There is no ‘tunnel’ to pass through as there is in other types of scans such as an MRI or CT scan, so it should not affect people who do not like being in enclosed spaces.

Dexa scan cost:
Many people get a bone-density test every few years. The main reason to have the test is to find and treat serious bone loss. But most men, and women under age 65, probably don’t need the test
A DEXA scan costs about $125. And if your doctor prescribes a drug when you only have mild bone loss, you spend money you don’t need to. A month’s supply of generic alendronate can cost as much as $75. Fosamax, the brand-name of the same drug, can cost twice as much.
Now we have full understanding of what we are talking about ,here is what to look out for …
