Question About DEXA Results

I had a DEXA done last week. The results show improvement compared to the results from my last DEXA in 2007. 2007 T Scores were: lumbar spine -1.24, left femoral neck -2.39. Last week's T scores were: lumbar spine -1.01, left femoral neck -0.96. This much improvement, especially in the left femoral neck, doesn't seem possible. The only change that I made in the last 3 years was that I switched from calcium carbonate to calcium citrate and I increased my vitamin D intake from 600 units to 1000 units.

Has anyone experienced such huge improvements in bone density ? DEXA mistakes ? I'm wondering whether I should try to pursue this further with my doctor or the hospital where I had the test done.

Thanks for any responses.
