UCF Pegasus Health Offers DEXA Scans For Bone Health

Symptoms of this “silent disease” don’t normally appear until the first break happens–typically in the hip, spine or wrist. Now UCF Pegasus Health, the physician practice for the UCF College of Medicine, offers DEXA scans, widely regarded as the safest, most accurate way to detect the disease.
