Bone Density Service

The BWH Department of Radiology provides Bone Densitometry services at the BWH Ambulatory Care Center in Chestnut Hill and at the BWH/MGH Care Center in Foxborough.

Our technologists and radiologists use state-of-the-art bone density scanners to produce accurate bone mass measurements while focusing on patient safety and comfort. Your spine, hip and perhaps your forearm are scanned to determine if you have osteoporosis.

Your doctor can select the BWH location that is closest to you or that offers the earliest available appointment.


For over a century, a leader in patient care, medical education and research, with expertise in virtually every specialty of medicine and surgery.
