Project Name: Beijing tongzhou district health and family planning commission purchased the whole body dual energy x-ray absorptiometry
The World Health Organization (WHO) defines osteoporosis using a T-score acquired through dual energy X-ray absorptiometry
(DXA) measurements of the hip and spine bone mineral density (BMD), since BMD is a diagnostic classification.

Dual-energy Xray absorptiometry
body composition model: review of physical concepts.
Anamnesis, a detailed clinical examination with the distinction between high and low risk factors as well as the quantitative ultrasound (QUS) make it possible to recognize the persons at an increased risk for osteoporosis and to refer them to the bone mineral density measurement (BMD) with double exposition with x-rays by dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry
Dual energy x-ray absorptiometry
(DXA) is a commonly used two-dimensional in-vivo imaging technique which is able to capture full body projections of mass densities through x-ray technology (Pfeiffer et al.
Total body, lumbar and hip BMD were evaluated at baseline, six and 12 months using dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry
Owing to the increasing fracture risk with aging, screening of the spine and hip by dual energy X-ray absorptiometry
(DXA) is advisable.
5, as measured by dual x-ray absorptiometry
(DXA), will have dramatically different fracture risks.
Central dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry
(DXA) screening for bone density is the standard test by which osteoporosis is detected, but these are expensive and subject patients to radiation.
