DIS is the first provider in the New Orleans area to offer single energy (SE) femur exams on a DEXA bone density study platform for the assessment of features associated with atypical femur fractures (AFF).
This first-of-its-kind capability assists clinicians in their assessment of potential AFF in patients who have been on anti-resorptive treatments such as bisphosphonates.
This quick 15-second SE Femur Exam is designed to produce a high resolution image of the entire femur with a very low effective radiation dose. An AFF assessment can be conveniently performed at the time of a hip bone density scan with little or no patient repositioning and a minimal increase in exam time.
DIS offers these types of exams at our Westbank center in Marrero.
