Introducing the Hologic DXA Scanner
January 11, 2021 by gofertility0
HERE IT IS! Introducing the newest addition to the CRMRS practice, our apologies it is not as cute as our baby additions !
We are welcoming the Hologic Horizon DXA! This machine has dual capability in screening bone density (R) and monitoring body composition (L).
We are so proud of the new addition to our practice and excited to explain all it can do for our patients!
The DXA machine has so much to offer! Here are just a few things it can do and it may relate to YOU!
**It has ability to perform bone densitometry (this can help identify patients with osteoporosis and osteopenia) and will give the risks of a fracture in the next 10 years!
Wondering if this applies to YOU?
This bone densitometry scan is beneficial to…
*patients who are on hormone replacement treatment
*have had both ovaries removed for any gynecologic conditions
*survivors of childhood and early adulthood cancers whose ovaries are affected by chemotherapy/ radiation therapy
*patients who may be on long term birth control such as depot provera
Keep an update on our posts this week for more information on our new addition and how to get an appointment set up!
