Dexa Bone Scan

Osteoporosis affects 60% over the age of 50. The majority of these people are women, but men are at risk too. Most often osteoporosis (the disease of porous bones) affects women with a drop in estrogen production, possibly due to menopause or an oophorectomy (surgical removal of the ovaries) and men with a reduced testosterone production. Women are affected earlier because their hormone production change is much more abrupt than that of men. This disease leads to crippling pain and life-threatening fractures.
Modern science has found a way of detecting and controlling Osteoporosis. This includes a specific diet, exercise, prescription treatments with calcium and vitamin D and regular screenings with DEXA scans.
Islamabad Diagnostic Center is equipped with a Delphi bone densitometer with FRAX capibility (Fracture Risk Assessment over coming 10 years). The Delphi is a high performance micro x-ray scanning machine. It utilizes fan beam technology and used solely for the detection of osteoporosis. DEXA scans are vital to early detection and control of Osteoporosis and can prevent a lot of pain and suffering on the part of the patient if done regularly.
