Bone densitometry scanning, also called bone scan, is an enhanced form of x-ray technology that is used to measure bone mineral density (BMD). 

It measures bone density in the hip, spine, wrist, forearm, foot, heel or fingers.

This examination uses x-rays to measure bone density in the hips and spinal cord.
