What happens during a DEXA scan?

Back to the FAQ page

The DEXA Scan is a quick and painless process. Before the scan begins, you will be asked to lie down on an open, flat X-ray table. There are no special preparations required and you will be able to remain fully clothed. You will, however, need to remove any clothes with metal or hard plastic such as zippers, buckles or hooks. During the scan, a scanning arm will be passed over your body.

The appointment includes a short consultation with a physician who will help you better understand your results.
