Weekly CHRISTUS Mother Frances-Sulphur Springs Report: Early detection is key for Osteoporosis by Holly Ragan

Osteoporosis affects 27 million American women, and those who are post-menopausal are at increased risk for developing the disease.  Early detection is key:  Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA), an advanced bone measurement technology, uses low-dose radiation to safely, painlessly, and precisely measure Bone Mineral Density (BMD).  The exam is fast and non-invasive:  you remain fully clothed, comfortably positioned on a padded table as the unit scans the examination sites.  The most common exam sites are the fracture-prone hips and spine.  We are happy to offer the DXA scan right here in Sulphur Springs.  Talk to your doctor to see if this is an exam that would benefit you.
