SHIELD

A DEXA (Dual-Energy X-ray Absorptiometry) scan is a non-invasive medical procedure that measures bone mineral density (BMD) and body composition. It utilizes low-dose X-rays to assess bone strength and identify conditions like osteoporosis. Additionally, DEXA scans provide insights into body fat distribution, aiding in the assessment of overall health and risk factors for metabolic disorders.


DEXA scans are crucial for diagnosing osteoporosis, a condition that increases fracture risk. They provide vital information about bone health, guiding interventions to prevent fractures. Additionally, DEXA scans assess body composition, including visceral fat, aiding in the evaluation of overall health and the identification of metabolic risks such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Early detection allows for timely interventions to mitigate these risks and improve health outcomes.
