Biohax administers DEXA body scans using dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry technology, which encompasses two X-ray beams at different energy levels that pass through the body to assess and quantify muscle mass, fat distribution, and bone density. The procedure is performed with the patient lying flat on a scanning bed. For body composition analysis, the scan duration is approximately seven minutes, while a bone density scan can take between 10 and 20 minutes. The process is non-invasive and involves minimal radiation exposure due to a contactless wand moving over the patient's body. Post-scan, a healthcare professional reviews and explains the results to the patient, which include detailed metrics crucial for health assessment.
