DEXA Scan IN CHENNAI
A DEXA scan or BMD scan (Bone mineral density scan) is used to know the strength of your bones, ie., their mineral density. It is also used in the diagnosis and follow-up of osteoporosis. Women who are over 45 years of age (postmenopausal) and men over 50 years of age develop osteoporosis and hence are susceptible to fractures with minor trauma. Vitamin D, Calcium, Phosphorus deficiency and lack of exposure to sunlight can trigger osteoporosis.
