DEXA

DEXA

My doctor would like me to take Prolia after my scan which showed a hip score of -2.9. I'm very hesitant though because of the serious side effects, plus the medical office at which I had the scan done is not DEXA accredited. And I've heard that mistakes can be made if the technicians doing the scans aren't properly certified. Does anyone else check the accreditations of the medical facilities performing their scans?
