For the DXA process, the device is adjusted to your age, weight and height. You lie down on a lounger and are usually allowed to keep your clothes on - unless you are wearing objects that could affect the measurement. Of course we will inform you here before the examination.
The DXA examination to measure bone density usually only takes a few minutes, is painless and only involves very little radiation.
After the examination, the radiologist evaluates the measurement result with special computer programs. Your measured values are compared with reference values and your individual bone density is evaluated in comparison.
