Osteoporosis - For Clinicians
You can refer for DXA:
- If you are a postmenopausal woman over 50 with a low trauma fracture (defined as a limb fracture after a fall from standing height or less while stationary or walking, or a vertebral fracture of the spine)
- Or, if you are a woman or man over 50 with a FRAX score in the intermediate or high risk zone
To make a referral, download and complete a form, alternatively you can order DXA on ICE.
In other circumstances, you may want to contact us first to establish eligibility. If your patient is ineligible for a scan under the NHS, we also offer this service self-funded at a cost of around £72.
