Peripheral Instantaneous X-Ray Imager or PIXI Scan
A PIXI Scan is a quick, mobile exam that scans a patient’s heel to determine bone density. The results are immediate. This study helps determine if one needs to have a DEXA Scan performed. If the results of this study fall into the high-risk category for osteoporosis or osteopenia, a DEXA scan can be performed on site directly after the PIXI scan.
