Bone Density Scanning In Chicago State
Testing your bone density—how strong your bones are—is the only way to know for sure if you have osteoporosis. Focusing on the hip and spine, DEXA (dual energy X-ray absorptiometry) scanning determines your bone health and your risk of fracture due to osteoporosis. By knowing the state of your bones, your Forum Health physician can take steps to strengthen your bones and even reverse osteopenia before you develop the debilitating symptoms of osteoporosis.
