- DEXA Scan
DEXA (dual energy X-ray absorptiometry) is one of the most accurate methods for measuring body composition.
As the name implies, two different energy levels of x-ray pass through your body and measure how much fat, muscle, and bone you have. A DEXA scan eliminates the guesswork and provides you with specific details about how much and where fat and muscle are situated on your body. If you’re a regular gym goer, athlete, or just starting to get back into shape, a high-resolution DEXA scan is just what you need to track, trend, and benchmark your results.
