Measuring Bone Density: The Children’s Difference

Your child's bone density is measured and monitored throughout the treatment process with Dual Energy X-ray Absortiometry (DEXA) scanning.

  • Unlike scanners that measure bone density in adults, the high-tech DEXA scanner is gauged specifically for children, including babies and toddlers.
  • Our radiology technologists have extensive experience in working with children, exposing them to the least amount of radiation to obtain the maximum benefit.
