What You'll Get
What is a DEXA Scan?
Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry Scan (DEXA or DXA Scan) is an advanced, highly accurate imaging technique for measuring total body composition. It uses X-ray beams at two different energy levels. Your muscles, fat, and bone all absorb the rays differently, allowing for a detailed and accurate image of your whole body and the breakdown of its compositions. The amount of radiation used for a DEXA scan is very low, lower than the background radiation you receive in a day. In general the scan can take anywhere from six to twelve minutes depending on body habitus. A detailed report is then created outlining the patient’s body composition.
Why use a DEXA scan over other options?
The reason DEXA scans are the gold standard of body composition measurements are; is the safest, most accurate and cost effective method. Not only can it measure body composition to the highest degree, it can specify body fat percentages to each area of the body. During dieting and exercise this can be used to track progress and help achieve desired goals. DEXA scans can also measure bone density and muscle mass, which can help track muscle atrophy during recovery periods from injuries.
