Ordering a Dexa Bone Density Exam

Orders entered into the University of Virginia's Epic EMR are available for UVA Imaging. 

UVA Imaging also accepts orders on any legal order form; however, please do not fax orders written on a prescription pad, as faxing will raise the void watermark invalidating the order.  Order forms are available for your convenience.
