Assessment of bone health can help individuals dealing with or at risk for musculoskeletal pain, bone loss disorders, and consequent fractures receive early treatment for better quality of life. The best way to determine bone health is through a bone density scan. Durdans Hospital Hologic Horizon W DEXA Scanner offers the latest technology in South Asia for bone density scanning with high-resolution images through 128 detector channels.
Multiple diseases can be diagnosed in just one visit. The bone density scanner also allows healthcare practitioners to accurately assess the risk of fracture with up to 10 year probability, enabling the timely diagnosis of patients at high risk for bone fractures due to low bone density and other important risk factors. The scan is safe and painless for patients through a streamlined examination process. A high quality and precise image can be obtained in a few minutes with the full screening only lasting around 15 minutes using one pass single sweep scan over the patient. The DEXA scan enables better patient positioning for imaging access.
Dr. Wimal Karandagoda, Director Medical services at Durdans Hospital says, “Bone density scan is recommended for those with risk factors such as family history of hip fractures or osteoporosis, Type 1 Diabetes and liver disease. It is also recommended for older individuals and post menopausal women.”
