The whole-body Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA or DEXA) scan can be used as a body analysis test to evaluate total body composition including muscle, bone, and fat content with a high degree of precision. Here is a whole-body DEXA scan sample. Body Composition Analysis Patients can opt to receive an evaluation of the results from our registered dietitian. How much does a body composition scan cost? Only $75 per scan with a detailed report Meet with our dietitian to review results for an additional $25 Call (970) 241-6014 for an appointment Reasons to get a Body Composition Scan Adipose Tissue Index Where fat accumulates in the body can have considerably different health effects. Generally, subdermal white adipose tissue is healthy, while abdominal white adipose tissue expansion in obesity is closely associated with metabolic disease. Most Accurate Method DEXA is the most accurate technique for body composition analysis trusted by science and elite sports research labs. It is a much more accurate body fat analysis test than BMI, InBody Scan, Bod Pod, hydrostatic weighing, and the caliper body fat test (body fat pinch test). Track and Identify Body Changes The DEXA body fat scan can be used to track your muscle gains and body fat measurement in specific body areas. It can monitor the actual physiological reaction of your body to your diet or exercise plan. FDA-Approved for Body Composition The FDA-approved DEXA uses x-ray technology to assess bone, muscle, and fat mass in your body. This is the same technology that has been used for years to measure bone density for osteoporosis diagnosis. However, this is scan not intended to be used to diagnose osteoporosis. Safe To detect the composition of each square inch of your body, the DEXA uses very weak x-ray beams. These findings not only provide you with a total body fat percentage measurement but also full visualization and examination of your lean muscle tissue and bone density.
