Blue Mountain Health System Joins St. Luke’s University Health Network

Bone Densitometry

This pain-free, non-invasive procedure takes no longer than 10 to 15 minutes and is recommended for women over 40 to detect the early signs of osteoporosis. Measuring the amount of bone mineral, our advanced equipment emits an extremely low amount of radiation . Loss of bone density leading to osteoporosis is most common in post-menopausal women, but may also occur with men. Our high-tech bone density scanning machine yields extremely accurate data with minimal radiation exposure.
