DXA Scan

Bone Densinometry

DXA stands for dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry. It is as safe and painless as a normal X-ray, but more accurate when measuring bone density.

 Prodigy delivers with exceptional precision and low-dose radiation. You can depend on Prodigy to provide precise data on soft tissue and bone composition, including bone-mineral density (BMD), lean- and fat-tissue mass, and percentage of fat. 

DXA Scan

Bone densitometry is a test like an X-ray that quickly and accurately measures the density of bone. It is used primarily to detect osteopenia or osteoporosis, diseases in which the bone's mineral and density are low and the risk of fractures is increased.

What is DXA Scan?

DXA stands for dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry. It is as safe and painless as a normal X-ray, but more accurate when measuring bone density.


A DXA scan aims a low dose of X-rays at the bone and then calculates the mineral content – this provides an accurate measurement of density.

We provide DXA Scan with exceptional precision and low-dose radiation.  Our services include:

  • DXA for the detection of osteoporosis

  • DXA + Instant Vertebral Assessment (IVA) for the assessment of vertebral (spine) fractures
