DEXA Scan At Clemenceau Medical Center Hospital Dubai

DEXA scan, also known as dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry, or more simply a bone density scan, is a medical imaging technique that is commonly used to measure bone mineral density (BMD). It is considered the gold standard for assessing bone health and diagnosing conditions such as osteoporosis.

During a DEXA scan at CMC Dubai, the patient lies on a table while a machine passes a low-dose X-ray beam through the body. The machine measures the amount of X-ray that passes through the bones, allowing for the calculation of BMD. The scan is typically performed on the hip, spine, or forearm, as these areas are most commonly affected by osteoporosis.

DEXA scan provides valuable information about bone density and can help identify individuals who are at risk of fractures or osteoporosis. It is a non-invasive and painless procedure that requires no special preparation. The results of a DEXA scan are usually reported as T-scores and Z-scores.

Dexa Scan Dubai
T-scores compare an individual’s bone density to that of a healthy young adult of the same sex. A T-score of -1 or above is considered normal, between -1 and -2.5 indicates osteopenia (low bone density), and -2.5 or below suggests osteoporosis.

Z-scores, on the other hand, compare bone density to that of individuals of the same age, sex, and body size. Z-scores outside the normal range may indicate underlying conditions that contribute to bone loss, such as hormonal disorders or nutritional deficiencies.

DEXA scan is commonly recommended for postmenopausal women, as they are at an increased risk of osteoporosis. Other individuals who may benefit from a DEXA scan include men over the age of 70, individuals with a history of fractures, those taking medications that affect bone health (such as long-term corticosteroids), and those with certain medical conditions that can impact bone density.
