Numenor Health offers full-body DEXA (Dual-Energy X-ray Absorptiometry) scanning to assess body composition, including bone mineral density, fat content, and lean muscle mass. The procedure involves the patient lying on a table while a low-dose X-ray beam passes over their body, capturing detailed images. The technology differentiates between various tissues, providing precise measurements. Numenor Health ensures patient comfort and safety by using equipment that minimizes radiation exposure and by having trained technicians conduct the scan. The entire process is non-invasive and typically completed within 10 to 20 minutes, depending on the protocol followed by Numenor Health.
