DEXA Bone Mineral Study
Osteoporosis is a growing health concern. Our Hologic Discovery DEXA machine gives Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County the opportunity to provide high quality bone health assessment by offering two powerful screening tests that can help our patients live longer, healthier, more active lives
- Vertebral fracture assessment and Bone Density Measurement (BMD). Our DEXA unit provides spine and hip bone mineral density results in seconds – no other osteoporosis screening system comes close to the combined speed and image resolution. With high resolution vertebral fracture assessment, we can detect vertebral fractures early, and save patient from debilitating and life-threatening spine and hip fractures in later life.
