Dexa Scan

Dexa Scan at Woodthorpe Hospital

DEXA stands for “Dual-energy X-Ray Absorptiometry”, which is a means of measuring bone density. The denser the bones are, the stronger they are and therefore less likely to break (fracture). 

At Ramsay Health Care we offer excellent Dexa scanning facilities that are managed by highly experienced staff.

We book convenient and rapid-access DEXA scan appointments for our patients. With variable NHS waiting times many patients choose a private DEXA scan with private medical insurance or self-pay options.

Our primary focus is to keep our patients and staff safe in our hospitals and we have meticulous procedures in place to support this.
