Bone density (DXA)
DXA is by appointment only.
Metal on clothing is not allowed in the scan area (lower chest, abdomen, and pelvis), as this causes technical problems with the scan. Examples of metal on clothing often overlooked include zips on trousers (even those that appear to be plastic), bra clasps and underwires, studs and buttons on jeans, and navel piercings.
Please make sure to wear clothes without metal, or arrive 15 minutes before your scan so you can change into a gown.
