In brief: Yes

Typically, if you are post menopause, a dexa scan is a good idea - to identify thin bones (osteopenia or osteoporosis).
Since this is considered a silent disease, you need a study to identify it. Additionally it is more prevalent in women. As such, many gyn's will order one for you - either in their office or elsewhere.
