Bone Densitometry Exams

Bone Densitometry machineThe Nancy Ausonio Mammography Center is now offering Bone Densitometry exams.

The center is utilizing the Hologic Discovery Bone Densitometry machine, providing the best diagnostic tools to support the early detection and treatment of osteoporosis. Discovery gives greater insight, with exceptional accuracy, into hip biomechanical strength, and identifies patients at risk for osteoporosis and vertebral fractures.

Also, the Discovery machine is the first to use the FRAX 10-year fracture risk calculator. It helps to identify patients who are at high risk of experiencing fractures within a period of 10 years, by combining eleven of the highest risk factors, including age, personal history of fractures, and family history of fractures, plus country-specific life expectancy and country-specific fracture data.

We are now offering appointments daily between 8:30am-4:30pm, Monday-Friday, and can coordinate the appointments alongside annual mammography screening. Under usual circumstances, a Bone Density exam can be completed within a twenty minute time frame.
