Bone Scan

Bone Mineral Density Scan

About This Procedure:

A bone scan is an x-ray that measures bone strength.  As we get older our bones lose minerals, like calcium; they become thinner, lighter, and less dense.  Weaker bones are more likely to break and can lead to a disease called osteoporosis which is common in women after menopause and in older adults. 

This particular scan of the hips, pelvis and spine uses a test called dual energy x-ray.  Some insurance plans fully cover the cost as part of preventive health coverage for older people who are at risk for bone loss.   The test takes about 5 minutes and is done in a variety of outpatient centers.

These are 2022 prices.  Use the link below to see if you can get a current, personalized cost estimate from your health insurer.
