WHAT TO EXPECT

DEXASCANNING

We offer the GE Lunar iDXA scanner, which offers the latest advances in Dual-energy X-ray Absorptiometry. The GE Lunar iDXA scanner is very safe. In fact, the radiation exposure that you receive going about your day (natural background radiation) exceeds the exposure from one DEXA scan. The scan itself will take about 10 minutes and provide a comprehensive report that is easy to understand.

PREPARE FOR YOUR SCAN

 

Wear loose-fitting, cotton clothing like a t-shirt and shorts or sweats. Clothing without heavy stitching or pockets yields the most accurate results.

Remove all wearable metal such a jewelry and piercings.

Arrive well-hydrated.

Do not workout out prior to your scan.

Follow the same measures for your second scan as you did for your first and try to schedule your second exam as close to the same time of day as you your first scan.
