Osteoporosis Screening

At the Marian Osteoporosis Center, our bone densitometry equipment enables us to assist in the diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis.

Osteoporosis used to be considered an inevitable consequence of aging. Today, with new techniques for early detection and increasing treatment options, osteoporosis management has become a routine. Please ask your doctor if bone density measurement may be appropriate for you.

Osteoporosis DXA Screening Scans

Our screening scans are most commonly seen at University-level centers of care  We offer full body scanning for adults, children and adolescents  as well as whole body fat composition imaging.

Body composition measurement with DXA can look beyond weight and traditional body mass index (BMI) to determine body fat distribution – an important risk factor in a variety of serious diseases. Information from DXA exams can prove valuable in conditions such as:

  • Anorexia nervosa
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Chronic renal failure
  • Obesity
  • Wasting syndrome (caused by HIV/Aids)
