Introduction: Dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) is considered to be the “goldstandard” for measuring bone mineral density (BMD). It is used for both diagnosis and monitoring of BMD over time. When it comes to monitoring patients over time it is important that the DXA-scanner is precise, so that one can know for sure whether or not a change in BMD is significant. Therefore it is important to perform a precision analysis on the scanner and its technologists.Methods: 33 patients were scanned 2 times each. The scans were done by two technologists scanning 21 and 12 patients each. From the material produced “Root Mean Squared Standard Deviation” (RMS SD), the “Coefficient of Variation” (CV) and the “Least Significant Change” (LSC) were calculated. 235 patients with low energy fractures were also analysed, looking at their type of fracture, BMD, age and sex.Results: In columna “L1-L4” had a RMS SD of 0.013g/cm2, in the hip “Neck” was 0.014g/cm2, and “Troch” was 0.013g/cm2. The CV was 1.30%, 1.58% and 1.62% respectively. 90.6% of the patients with low energy fractures had T-Scores <-1.0, and 42.1% had T-Scores ≤ -2.5. 58.3% of fractures were located in the forearm, and 20.7% in the humerus.Conclusion: The precision of the DXA-scans were excellent with CV less than 2.0% for the areas used in clinical practice. A high percentage of the patients with low energy fractures had osteopenia or osteoporosis (90.6%), and fractures of the forearm or the humerus were most common. Several patients had multiple fractures.
