Hi, I had a bone density scan a year ago, I suppose it is the same thing as a DEXA scan. I started treatment for Osteoporosis in the Spine and have a follow up appontment coming up soon.
I'm wondering how often we are supposed to have a repeat scan. Is there a risk from the radiation or is it really just a low dose that they use?
Another question; are there any other ways to scan for this for eg does it show on an MRI?
