Posted by Alex Silbergleit on Thu, Sep 18, 2014 @ 11:09 AM

Have you had a bone scan done to measure bone density and fracture risk? If so, then you probably know what a bone densitometer is. It’s a specific kind of x-ray system that uses two x-ray beams to measure the calcium content of bone to reflect bone density and bone fracture risk. Each x-ray beam has a different energy level that’s aimed at the patient’s bones.

Dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry is the most popular bone density measurement technology used.
