PHSI installs permanent DEXA scanner

The radiology department of Philip Health Services Inc. has had a Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DEXA) scanner installed.
This is a specialized device for detecting bone density, and the onset of osteopenia and osteoporosis. PHSI used to offer this service through a mobile unit, but the mobile unit service out of Rapid City was discontinued and disbanded in early 2011. PHSI has now purchased the same equipment that was used before, and that machinery has been installed for regular use in Philip.
