Dexa Scan and Body Fat Composition

THE GOLD STANDARD OF BODY COMPOSITION ANALYSIS

DEXA is FDA-approved and quantifies your lean, fat, and bone mass (to identify osteoporosis), and visceral fat (which correlates to your risk for hormonal imbalances and disease)

Common alternative methods, such as BMI, Bioimpedance, Bod Pod, and hydrostatic weighing, are often used incorrectly as a surrogate for body composition health. But they can be dangerously misleading.

For example, if you have a BMI of 25 kg/m2, you may have a body fat percentage anywhere from 10-35 percent. If you use other alternative methods, you may see a margin of error range from 5 to 15%.

Dexa Scan Image Test

Whereas as a DEXA scan’s accuracy and precision ranges from a 1 to 2 percent margin of error, it also provides additional information that BMI and alternative testing methods cannot, including:

  • Visceral Adipose Tissue (VAT), which is leading predictor of longevity, metabolic syndrome, and cardiovascular disease.
  • Skeletal strength, your risk for osteoporosis, and how you compare to others like you.
  • “Skinny fat” and sarcopenia risks, which has been found to be an important predictor of cognitive performance
  • Skeletal strength, your risk for osteoporosis, and how you compare to others like you.
  • Muscle symmetry to identify how your lean, fat, and bone mass compares in each region of your body.
  • “Skinny fat” and sarcopenia risks, which has been found to be an important predictor of cognitive performance

Dexa Scan Uses

  • Dual-energy absorptiometry (DEXA) is the most accurate method for body composition analysis trusted by research and elite sports labs

  • Simple to do and significantly more precise than other methods (including BMI, InBody, BodPod, and hydrostatic weighing)

  • DEXA is FDA-approved and quantifies your lean, fat, and bone mass (to identify osteoporosis), and visceral fat (which correlates to your risk for hormonal imbalances and disease)

  • University and professional sport labs across the country trust DEXA as the most accurate body composition measurement available

Test pinpoints your precise fitness level, pure endurance potential, and cardiovascular degeneration. Learn yours if you want to exercise smarter, avoid overtraining, and detect any early signs of disease.

Knowing your metabolic health and RMR is crucial to your success on any nutrition or training plan.

  • See how efficient your body is at converting food to energy and using fat or sugar as fuel
  • Feed your body in a way that achieves your goals and conquer plateaus
  • Learn if you have a slowed metabolism to understand frustrated attempts to lose weight and plateaus
  • Track how your body composition changes with a DEXA scan to understand how the food you eat affects your body fat, lean mass, and bone

3D body scan maps the surface of your body and shows you more than 400 results about your body in three dimensions. Used by leading researchers and performance centers around the globe to track your body measurements, posture, and more.
