WHAT IS DXA (DEXA)?
DXA is a scan to measure bone density. Bone densitometry is a simple and noninvasive procedure that is used to measure bone mass and assists in the diagnosis of osteoporosis.

Basically, all you have to do is lie flat on a table while the scanner moves over the top of your body. Generally, the bone density is measured at different sites in the body, usually both hips (or femurs) and the spine (or vertebral column). If you have had both hips surgically replaced or if you have had surgery on your spine, an alternative site may be chosen. The actual scanning time is about 10 minutes per site but you should allot 40 minutes for the entire procedure.

What is PET/CT?
PET/CT is a powerful imaging technique that holds great promise in the diagnosis and treatment of many diseases, particularly cancer. A non-invasive test, PET/CT accurately images metabolic and anatomic information in the human body in a single scan. This allows your physician to examine your entire body at once. PET/CT provides a more complete picture, making it easier for your doctor to diagnose problems, determine the extent of disease, prescribe treatment, and track progress.
