Mary Jane DellaVecchia is a Bone Densitometry Technician who attends to patients at the private practice of Dr. Samar M. Charabaty, rheumatologist, in Gilroy, California, which she joined in 2009. As a bone densitometry technician, she uses a special type of x-ray equipment to measure bone mineral density at a specific anatomical site (usually the wrist, heel, spine or hip) or to calculate total body bone mineral content. Results can be used by physicians to estimate the amount of bone loss due to osteoporosis. Prior to her current endeavors, Mary Jane worked for Altos Oaks Medical Group Inc/El Camino Hospital (2006-2014). Mary dedicates her spare time to reading and keeping up on health trends. She belongs to the Morgan Hill Historical Society and enjoys spending time with her two sons.

Bone densitometry is a test like an X-ray that quickly and accurately measures the density of bone. It is used primarily to detect osteopenia or osteoporosis, diseases in which the bone’s mineral and density are low and the risk of fractures is increased. Bone densitometry technologists are radiology professionals who are responsible for measuring patients’ bone mass to determine bone health, especially for the purpose of diagnosing osteoporosis and other bone diseases.
Working in a team-based setting where everyone is committed to patient improvement is the main reason why Mary Jane chose this particular field. To her, the fast pace of working for so many doctors and meeting their deadlines while documenting facts and ensuring patient safety is a complex, yet exhilarating challenge.
