    Dexa scan images

    Diagnosed with osteopenia 3 yrs ago. Had second dexa scan 2 days ago and there were a lot of bright spots and bright linings on bone. Anyone know what the bright spots mean? I'm waiting for my results.

    RE: Dexa scan images

    Not sure what you mean by bright. If you're seeing white(r) spots, usually that indicates high calcium concentrations. The DXA scan only measures the calcium in the bone and won't show anything else like a regular x-ray would.
