3D Bone densitometry is performed to:
Determine Osteoporosis to assess their risk of having a bone fracture within the next few years.
Check up for any chance of having Osteoporosis in case of family history.
It is recommended to do Bone density testing for patients with type 1 diabetes, liver disease, kidney disease, thyroid condition or male patients with clinical conditions associated with bone loss.
Evaluate any unexplained bone weight.
Assess the situation in case of a loss of more than an inch of height.
Total time: 1 hr.
Test time- 10-15 mins.
The patient will be asked to lie on a padded table, with the X-ray generator positioned below the patient and the imaging device positioned below.
It’s important that the patient stays very still and may also be asked to hold their breath for a few seconds during the time which the image is obtained.
If the doctor is checking for osteoporosis, the lumbar spine and the hips are usually examined.
For appointment call 8869906990 or write at email@example.com atleast 1 or 2 days prior to the required date of appointment.
(if another scheduled patient has cancelled we may consider taking in walk-in patients. Do check in with our reception and our billing executives at our centre.)
We may have to reschedule or cancel appointments at times because of reasons beyond our control – short-supply or no supply of the isotope used for the scan from an external source, machine breakdowns, etc.
As we have no control over this situation, Medcare Diagnostics would not be held liable for any harm or loss arising out of such cancellations.
