Bone Density Test - DXA at UPMC in Central Pa.

UPMC in Central Pa. uses the most advanced technology to provide comprehensive osteoporosis care and DXA bone density tests.

Osteoporosis, a progressive condition that causes weakening of the bones, affects nearly half of all post-menopausal women and nearly one in three men over the age of 65.

Bone Density Tests

If you are at risk for osteoporosis, our imaging team will perform a bone density test using special X-ray technology called DXA (dual energy X-ray absorptiometry). The machine will scan your hip and spine to detect early loss of bone. The test is painless and takes approximately 20 minutes.
