DEXA Scan

Women experience bone loss naturally when they go through the menopause and this might also be caused by breast cancer treatment. It is therefore important for tests to be conducted to track your bone density. The most commonly used bone mineral density test is the dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) scan. This scan uses low levels of x-rays to measure bone mineral density across your whole skeleton, but it can be focussed in on areas that are most likely to break.
