The latest DEXA whole body scanning technology is now available in the Busselton region. The most current innovation in bone densitometry and body composition with the lowest dose.The MediDR System employs a very low dose dual energy x-ray absorptiometry to measure Bone Mineral Density (BMD), Bone Mineral Content (BMC), T-score, Z-score and Area.
Bone densitometry, also called dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry or DEXA, uses a very small dose of ionizing radiation to produce pictures of the inside of the body (usually the lower spine and hips) to measure bone density or bone loss. It is the most accurate method used for diagnosing osteoporosis and to assess an individual’s risk for developing fractures. DEXA is simple, quick and non-invasive.
Scanning of the axial skeleton by dual energy X-ray absorptiometry is the gold standard in Australia for the measurement of bone mineral density, enabling doctors to determine the extent of bone loss for clinical decision making.
The MediDR System is also one of the leading and most accurate scanners to measure body composition to assist doctors and dietitians managing patients with chronic diseases.
Whether it is optimising athletic performance or tracking change in body composition rather than the less meaningful measure, weight reduction, a MediDR can provide an accurate safe solution.
