For the first time in Kutch, we have installed a high-tech. State of The Art GE Lunar DPX NT (Bone Densitometry System) For the assesment of OSTEOPOROSIS AND BODY FAT ANALYSIS.
Bone density scanning, also called dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) or bone densitometry, is an advanced form of x-ray technology that is used to measure bone loss. DEXA is today's Gold standard for measuring bone mineral density (BMD)
Our Lunar DPX NT also provides Body Composition scans with exceptionally precise and accurate data on lean tissue mass and fat tissue mass to diagnose obesity.
It is an advanced xray technology considered gold standard for assessment of bone mineral density. Our lunar dpx nt also provides body composition scans with exceptionally precise and accurate data on tissue composition, including lean tissue mass and fat tissue mass to diagnose obesity.
DEXA body composition scans are highly reproducible, accurate and precise. This means you can track your progress with confidence. Our tec hnicians have been trained, and we believe that our standard operating procedures for Body Composition work is at the highest technical levels. Each aspect of our approach is backed by many hours of research and consideration of best practices. In this way, you can be confident that each DEXA scan will provide the following information with 99% accuracy:
On the day of the exam you may eat normally. You should not take calcium supplements for at least 24 hours before your exam.
You should wear loose, comfortable clothing, avoiding garments that have zippers, belts or buttons made of metal. Objects such as keys or wallets that would be in the area being scanned should be removed.
Inform your physician if you recently had a barium examination or have been injected with a contrast material for a computed tomography (CT) scan or radioisotope scan. You may have to wait 10 to 14 days before undergoing a DXA test.
Women should always inform their physician and radiologist if there is any possibility that they are pregnant. Many imaging tests are not performed during pregnancy so as not to expose the fetus to radiation.
