DXA Scanning Service

As part of the diagnostic services offered at the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic, we offer a full body composition and bone density DXA scanning service. This is currently a private service, offered at a competitive rate. This service is supported by Dr Michael Stone, Consultant Physician and Director of Bone Research, University Hospital Llandough.

A DXA scan is a safe and painless procedure which involves being exposed to a small dose of ionising radiation (X-rays). In order to comply with IR(ME)R 2000 regulations, all patients must have a clinically justified referral from a healthcare practitioner.

Appointments are available Tuesday am (9am – 1pm) and Wednesday pm (1pm – 5pm). Easily accessible by public transport (we are directly opposite the Trefforest train station) or by car, directions will be sent to you once your appointment is confirmed. Free car parking is available to you for the duration of your appointment.

The results will normally be made available to your referring practitioner within 2 working days.
