The bone density measurement performed at the Radiology Ottobrunn, the DXA (Dual-energy X-ray Absorptiometry) method is the only method recognized by the WHO (World Health Organisation) and the DGO (German Society for Osteology) for the determination of bone density.
In order to make an optimal statement about your bone mass, we examine it at the lumbar spine and on the thigh neck.
The examination takes about 15-minutes while you lie relaxed on your back.
the radiation exposure in this examination (1 to 2 µSv) corresponds approx. 1/6 of your natural daily exposure from 6 µSv.
