X-ray (X-Ray) examination and​​​Bone density (DEXA) examination

What is X-Ray inspection?

X-ray examination uses tiny X-rays to penetrate various parts of the human body to create images. It is commonly used to diagnose lung diseases (such as lung cancer and pneumonia), urinary stones, spine and limb trauma, etc.

What is a bone density (DEXA) test?

Bone density test is to measure the bone density of the lumbar spine and femur through a double X-ray absorptiometry. The data can be used to assess whether a patient suffers from osteoporosis, the risk of fracture, and to measure the effectiveness of hormone replacement therapy.
