DEXA scans measure bone mineral density. Osteoporosis affects many people. Though osteoporosis is much more common in women, both sexes should start getting their bone density measured after the age of 65. You may want to start getting tested a little earlier if you are have already experienced menopause and have some of the risk factors associated with osteoporosis. Your chances of having osteoporosis go up if you:
- Are white or Asian
- Have a sibling or parent with osteoporosis
- Have a small body structure
- Have thyroid problems
- Eat very little calcium
- Have an eating disorder
- Have had stomach reduction surgery
Talk with your primary care physician to determine if a Dexa scan is right for you.
Computed tomography (CT) scans can be used for many different purposes, but here at Memorial Clinic, we focus mainly on doing CT scans to help diagnose and treat sinus problems. With sinus CT scans, we can:
- Detect inflammation
- Plan for nasal surgeries
- Evaluate the amount of fluid in the sinuses
- Diagnose sinusitis
If you talk to your doctor about sinus problems, they might refer you to our lab for testing. While you’re here, we’ll make sure that you have the best care possible.
Memorial Clinic is equipped with 2 state of the art diagnostic X-Ray machines. Our physicians use this equipment to diagnose various problems, such as:

The physicians at Memorial Clinic will help determine if a diagnostic X-Ray is right for you.
The Memorial Clinic X-Ray Department is equipped to only handle radiology tests that have been recommended by physicians or providers that are practicing at Memorial Clinic.
Our staff of radiology experts can educate you on anything you need to know regarding our processes. We recommend that you meet with your primary care physician if you believe that you need to have a radiology test performed. They will determine the best course of treatment to meet your needs.
