Our radiologic technologists, who are licensed by the State of Connecticut, will perform your bone density testing. They are registered with the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists, have completed a 2-year course of study and have passed a comprehensive examination. They have also received extensive training in order to administer bone density testing.
A bone density test is a quick and painless procedure. You will lie on your back on a table. A scanner will pass over your spine and hips, taking pictures as it moves. These images are sent to a computer that analyzes the data and prints the results. The entire procedure takes about 15 minutes.
