DXA scan is a highly accurate examination that provides precise information about body composition and body morphology by scanning specific areas or the entire body. It provides data on bone density, muscle mass and fat percentage, which are very useful for the detection and prevention of diseases and injuries. It makes possible to diagnose osteoporosis at an early stage – long before a person suffers a fracture.

What is an osteodensitometry or DXA scan?

Fan beam technology allows extremely fast scanning with minimal radiation levels (under 10mRem for scanning).

A DXA scan is extremely accurate, painless and more effective than a normal X-ray when it comes to identifying low bone density.

How does a DXA scan work?

At Regina Life Clinic, we work with the latest Dual X-ray Absorptiometry (DXA) technology. The results of the procedure are processed by computer software. They are read by a specialist radiologist, who prepares a report on your condition and, in case of deviations, refers you to an endocrinologist or rheumatologist.

Can DXA scans be used on pregnant women?

Usually, this type of examination does not require urgency, and for this reason it is postponed for the period of pregnancy. In the case of an imperative examination, judged by a specialist, the area of the spine (AP Spine) is avoided in order not to irradiate the fetus. The general recommendation is that despite the relatively low dose of radiation, a DXA scanner is not recommended for pregnant women, as there is a minimal risk of X-rays harming the fetus.


At Regina Life Clinic, we work with the latest technology, which uses a fan-shaped beam during the scan, which allows us to scan larger areas in an extremely short time with minimally low radiation levels for the patient.

What is a DXA scan used for?

How often can it be applied?

The examination can be done no more than 2 times a year (treatments give results after 6 months at the earliest) for patients with a diagnosed disease and annually for the risk groups.

How long takes the procedure?

One standard area is between 19 and 29 seconds. The examination of the whole body lasts about 7-10 minutes.
