- $79 for DEXA bone-density and body-composition analysis ($195 Value)
The DEXA—or dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry—bone-density and body-composition analysis measures two things: bone density and fat content versus lean-muscle mass. The bone density test helps predict individuals’ risk for developing fractures or osteoporosis. Customers should wear loose-fitting clothing without metal zippers or snaps on the day of the appointment, as well as leave all jewelry at home or with a stranger who has an honest face. Those taking medications for osteopenia or osteoporosis should not take them on the day of the test.
The technicians and board-certified radiologists at PremiereScan don't have to guess what's going on in the body; they can see right into it. Using advanced equipment such as CT scans, MRIs, and DEXA bone-density scans, they're able to screen for cancers and osteoporosis and assess body-mass indexes more accurately than pinching folds. Even traditional x-rays get an upgrade; digital x-rays reveal interior goings-on while cutting back on most of the radiation emitted by traditional radiographs.
