Patients receiving a bone density test at St. Elizabeth's Medical Center receive a personalized, state-of-the-art experience. Our Bone Density Center includes a Lunar bone densitometer and a full time technician certified by the International Society for Clinical Densitometry (ISCD), who is dedicated exclusively to the performance of bone densitometries. Dr. Ann Sweeney, an active member of the division of endocrinology, is the director of the bone densitometry program and is assisted by technician Maria Stamos. Dr. Ann Sweeney is ISCD certified in the interpretation of bone density scans, and interprets all of the bone density results. Results of previous scans are reviewed and directly compared with current studies in all patients with previous scans at this site dating back to ten years.
Bone density testing is available 5 days/week. On average there is less than a three-day wait from the time a bone density test is requested and obtaining a bone density test and results are sent to referring physicians within one week.
Immediate faxed results are available by request. Same-day endocrine consultation, regarding interpretation of bone density results and suggestions for management of osteoporosis, following a bone density test may be arranged by appointment. Body composition studies can also be performed.
