Osteoporosis/DEXA Scans


Osteoporosis reduces bone strength and leads to bone fractures. This bone loss occurs slowly without symptoms. Fortunately, screening tests make it possible to assess your risk and take action to delay or prevent further bone loss.
 

Who is at risk?

Women are four times more likely to develop osteoporosis than men, and more than half of women ages 65 or older have some loss of bone density. Men with low testosterone also have a higher risk. View our infographic for more info.
 

Screening for osteoporosis

Two types of screening techniques are used to detect osteoporosis:

  • Sahara bone sonometer sends painless sound waves through the heel to determine bone density; depending on results, additional testing may be necessary.
  • DEXA scan is a fast, non-invasive X-ray performed on your lumbar spine, hip and wrist to predict your risk of fracture.


For your convenience, bone density scanning is available at the LG Health Osteoporosis Testing Facility, located in the Suburban Outpatient Pavilion. Osteoporosis testing is also available at Norlanco Outpatient Center and Kissel Hill Outpatient Center.

For more information or to make an appointment, please call (717) 544-3759.
