OHC doctors use a variety of advanced imaging technologies available to diagnose and treat cancer. A Dexa Scan measures bone density by passing X-rays, with two different energy levels, through the bone. It is used to diagnose osteoporosis, which is sometimes a side effect of cancer treatments.

If you’ve been diagnosed with breast cancer, your doctor will probably recommend a baseline DEXA scan before you start treatment and regular DEXA scans as you move through treatment. This will allow us to make sure your bones are staying strong and take protective measures if you do start to experience some bone loss.
