Bone densitometry (DEXA scan)
DEXA stands for "dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry," and is considered the most accurate test for bone density. While standard X-rays show changes in bone density after about 40 percent of bone loss, a DEXA scan can detect changes after about a 1 percent change. A bone density test may be used to check for osteoporosis.
You can call and make your own appointment for a regular mammogram – (502) 897-8888. Your doctor must refer you for all other diagnostic imaging.
