A Bone Mineral Densitometry examination is a comfortable, easy test that does not require an injection. You change into a gown. You will be asked to lie on your back in two different positions to allow measurement of the lower spine and one of the hips. The technique used in the test uses a very small amount of radiation, so please inform staff if there is any possibility of pregnancy. A radiographer will remain in the room for the entire examination.
