Scanning Clinic – Monday, 14th December – 10.30am to 4.30pm
EchoS is a radiation-free, diagnostic scanning device developed in Italy which gives access to earlier measurement of bone mineral density than DEXA, with immediate, easy-to understand results, including your
Z-score and T-score. Results are used, with other parameters, to calculate your FRAX score – an accurate prediction of your 10 year probability of suffering a major osteoporotic fracture.
The 30 min appointments will be conducted by Dr Nick Birch, Dr Nick Birch, Spinal Surgeon and Orthopaedic Consultant. Both your lumbar spine and hip will be scanned. Full results of the scan will be discussed and advice given which is personalised and tailored to your needs.
Scan fee £150. A non-refundable deposit of £25.00 secures your appointment, book with Jayne. Balance payment is due a week before the appointment.
CAN’T MAKE THIS DATE? We are planning to run a repeat of the scanning clinic next year – details yet to be confirmed, and will arrange other dates for a repeat of the educational talk.
