A DXA test measures your bone mineral density at your hip and spine, which shows your doctor if you have osteopenia or osteoporosis. DXA uses X-ray technology that exposes you to less radiation than a standard chest X-ray (about the same amount of radiation exposure as taking a trans-continental flight). This test takes about 10 minutes and is painless. You simply lie on a special table and the machine measures your bone density.
