What is a DEXA scan?
A DEXA scan is the most reliable way to measure body fat, bone, and lean muscle throughout your body. It’s a simple and quick non-invasive procedure that provides a quantitative measure of your body composition. This allows you to optimize your program to suit your body’s needs.
Dual Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry (DEXA or DXA) uses a low-dose x-ray to measure fat mass, lean mass and bone mineral content within the body. The scan takes only 6 minutes to complete and is the most comprehensive and least invasive body composition method available.
DEXA provides significant advantages over traditional body comp methods including:
● Highest Accuracy: Most accurate method available, with an error rate of only 1-2% (most other methods have a 5-15% margin of error)
● Three Component Model: DEXA (DXA) distinguishes between body fat mass, lean mass, AND bone mineral content within the body. All other methods are two components: body fat mass and lean mass only.
● Regional Analysis: You’ll receive a breakdown of body fat mass & lean mass in 5 key regions of the body: arms, legs, trunk, android (belly), and gynoid (hips) regions so that you can see exactly where your changes are happening. No other method can provide this much detail.
● Muscle Imbalances: We will compare left and right side lean muscle in the arms, legs, and trunk region to determine if there are any muscular imbalances due to overuse or injury.
● Bone Density: You will receive a total body bone density analysis to assess risk for Osteopenia and Osteoporosis.
● No Restrictions: There is no need to remove or wear minimal clothing. There are also no dietary restrictions such as fasting or elimination of water or caffeine intake.
