After the DXA Scan Performed by Hill Medical

What to expect during a DXA scan?

During a comprehensive examination with DXA, you lay comfortably still on a padded table while the DXA unit scans two or more areas, usually the fracture-prone hip and spine.

Unlike typical x-ray machines, radiation exposure during bone densitometry is extremely low - less than the radiation exposure during a coast-to-coast airline flight. The entire process takes only 15 minutes to complete, depending on the number of sites scanned. It involves no injections or invasive procedures, and you remain fully clothed.
