Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Patient lying on a DEXA (dual energy X-ray absorbtiometry) scanner. DEXA scans reveal bone mineral density (BMD) by passing two X-ray beams with different energy levels through bone. BMD can then be determined by observing the absorption level of each beam. DEXA scanning is most commonly used in the diagnosis of osteoporosis (brittle bone disease).

Release details: Model release available. Property release not available.
