Bone and Mineral
The Bone and Mineral Unit at OHSU provides expert consultation and care for patients with skeletal disorders and problems of mineral metabolism. We are further dedicated to expanding the understanding of the causes and treatments of bone and mineral disorders, particularly Osteoporosis.
Bone Density (DEXA) Scan
The Bone Density Lab uses Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DEXA) to measure the mineral density of bones. A bone density scan can help provide important information to you and your physician for the diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of Osteoporosis and other metabolic bone conditions.
