The Dexa Scan for body fat composition is a precise and non-invasive imaging test that measures bone density, lean muscle mass, and fat distribution throughout the body. Utilizing dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA), the procedure provides detailed insights into body composition, crucial for personalized health and fitness planning. During the scan, the individual lies comfortably on a scanning table while the DEXA machine passes over their body, emitting a low-dose X-ray beam. The entire process is quick, typically taking 10 to 20 minutes, and is conducted under the supervision of our trained radiologic technologists.
