Experts consider this to be one of the best methods to assess bone quality.While DEXA remains an excellent option to gather comprehensive information on bone health, the equipment is expensive and many people cannot afford this procedure.DEXA uses a very small dose of ionizing radiation to create pictures of spine and hips to measure bone loss.Ultrasound could lead to increased screenings for osteoporosis. — also of West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine — believes that using ultrasound will not give all the information that a DEXA scan could gather.However, it can help doctors decide whether they should initiate treatment for the person.Your privacy is important to us.Healthline Media UK Ltd, Brighton, UK.© 2004-2019 All rights reserved.
