More FAQs
  • DEXA scans do cause ionising radiation exposure, though the risks are extremely low. Tests using ionising radiation, such as a CT scan or DEXA scan are generally not recommended for pregnant women unless the benefits strongly outweigh the risks of not having the test. This is because an unborn baby is at an increased risk of being affected by the radiation, though the assumed risk to a foetus is still extremely low.

  • Osteoporosis is a condition that weakens bones and puts you at a higher risk of broken bones and fractures. Risk factors for developing osteoporosis include a family history of osteoporosis or hip fractures, low body weight or BMI, or if you already have rheumatoid arthritis, chronic kidney disease, or chronic liver disease. Bone density tests like DEXA scans can help assess and monitor your risk of osteoporosis. This is important as it's not usually clear whether someone has osteoporosis until they suffer a break or fracture, from even a minor fall or incident.
