Why Measure Your Body Composition With DEXA?
DEXA gets you answers. Not estimates.
Knowing your actual body composition distribution gives you the information you need to:
Discover your body's individual needs and how to customize your training and diet to optimize health
Visualize and pinpoint the exact impact of a new plan down to precise muscle gains and fat loss in specific areas of the body
Optimize your program to suit your body's specific physiological response to your diet and training
Discover your bone health and learn your risk for osteoporosis
Identify personal long-term health risks, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hormonal imbalances, and more
What is DEXA?
Sometimes called DEXA, Dual-Energy X-ray Absorptiometry is the gold standard for measuring body composition and bone health. It's the preferred method trusted by medical professionals, research facilities, and sports labs around the world.
A DEXA scan is a quick and easy test that measures your total body fat and includes the exact breakdown of bone mass, fat tissue, and muscle in your body.
A DEXA scan is the most precise and reliable body fat test available today, providing you with 98%+ accuracy.
HOW IT WORKS?
- Wear workout-type clothes without any metal when you come in for your test.
- The test takes about 10-15 minutes. All you do is lie down on the table and the C-arm will pass over you 3 times; you won't feel a thing.
- Once the scan is completed, our doctors will review your results and answer any questions.
- You will get a full print out of your results to take home with you.
