What is a DEXA scan and why is it important?

A DEXA (Dual-Energy X-ray Absorptiometry) scan is a sophisticated imaging test that measures bone density and body composition, providing essential insights into your bone health and risk of conditions like osteoporosis. It's pivotal for early detection, prevention strategies, and monitoring the effectiveness of treatments or lifestyle changes.

Who should consider getting a DEXA scan?

Individuals at risk of osteoporosis, athletes, fitness enthusiasts, or anyone interested in a detailed analysis of their bone health and body composition can benefit from a DEXA scan. It's particularly recommended for postmenopausal women, people over 50, and those with risk factors for bone loss.

What can I expect during a DEXA scan appointment?

The scan is quick, non-invasive, and painless. You will lie on a scanning table while the machine passes over your body. The process typically takes about 10-20 minutes, and you can return to your normal activities immediately afterward.

How should I prepare for a DEXA scan?

No special preparation is needed. However, you should wear loose, comfortable clothing without metal fasteners and avoid taking calcium supplements for at least 24 hours before the scan.

How do I interpret my DEXA scan results?

After your scan, a DexaStrong specialist will review your results with you, explaining your bone density scores and what they mean for your health. You'll receive personalised advice based on your results, which may include lifestyle recommendations or referrals for further medical evaluation.

Is the DEXA scan safe?

Yes, DEXA scans use very low levels of X-ray radiation and are considered safe for most people.

The radiation exposure is significantly lower than that of standard X-ray procedures.

Can I have a DEXA scan if I'm pregnant?

DEXA scans are not recommended during pregnancy. If you suspect you might be pregnant, please inform your healthcare provider before scheduling the scan.

How often should I have a DEXA scan?

The frequency of DEXA scans depends on your individual health status and risk factors. Generally, it's recommended every 1-2 years for those at higher risk of bone loss. Your healthcare provider at DexaStrong can provide guidance tailored to your specific needs.
