DEXA Body Composition Scan
Why is a DEXA scan essential to your health and fitness journey?
Whether you are a dieter, athlete or fitness enthusiast, DEXA scans are the gold standard in measuring the key elements of body composition: bone, fat and muscle tissue. Measurably more accurate that alternative methods (Bioimpedance, Bod Pod, and hydrostatic weighing), DEXA scans tell you exactly where and how much fat and lean muscle you have in precise regions of your body. This lets you visualize and pinpoint the specific impact of a new training or diet plan could have on targeted areas of your body.
What are the key benefits of a dexa scan?
Eliminate the guessing game
Know where and how to target your specific areas to reach your health and fitness goals
Scales don’t give you the detail and alternative methods can have a margin of error on key metrics of 5-15%
Progress you can see
Get a baseline so you can track how your targeted training and diet plan are helping you achieve your goals
Know your risks
Understand your bone health as well as visceral adipose tissue (VAT) or visceral fat which help to identify personal long term health risks
Two women, who both weigh 157lbs, can have completely different body compositions, but the scale won’t tell you that. A DEXA scan will let you find where that fat is hiding, which muscles need more attention, and if you may need to pay more attention to your bone health or visceral fat.
How it works and How to Prepare
DEXA scan is a dual-energy x-ray performed on a hospital grade GE machine. In other words, it uses a very weak x-ray to scan every inch of your body from multiple angles to specifically map your body composition. It takes about 6-10 minutes and you just need to lay on the scanning table. Here’s a quick overview:
Make a 30-minute appointment and arrive on time
Remove any metal jewelry and/clothing with a high metal content (underwires are fine), but you’ll remain clothed
Lay on the scanner for a quick scan
Immediately review and discuss your results with the lab technician
