Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I have a body composition scan done?

How does DXA work?

This is what a DXA body composition scan looks like

A DXA scan uses a low dose x-ray to analyze YOUR Body.  The open scan passes over your body in 6-10 minutes (depending on your body size).  As it passes over you it is directly measuring how much muscle, body fat, and bone mass your body contains, including its specific distribution.

What does DXA measure?

DXA is capable of measuring overall, as well as regional, fat mass, lean mass, and bone mass.  It can also be used to measure bone density and body water.

Why is DXA more accurate than other body compositon methods?

The DXA (duel-energy X-ray absorptiometry) scan provides one of the most highly accurate measurements of body composition available, registering fat and lean mass distribution throughout the entire body. Compared to other body composition testing methods, DXA is capable of detailing overall, as well as regional, fat mass, lean mass, and bone mass.  This is why DXA is considered the gold standard of body composition testing.

Is a DXA scan safe?

The DXA scanner uses beams of very low-energy radiation to determine body composition. The amount of radiation is tiny: about one-tenth of a chest X-ray. For example, the radiation received by the patient during the scan is less than that of an airline flight from California to New York and back. The test is painless, and considered completely safe. Pregnant women should not get DEXA scans because the developing baby shouldn’t be exposed to radiation, no matter how low the dose, if possible.

What is body composition?

In physical fitness, body composition is used to describe the percentages of fat, bone and muscle in human bodies. Because muscular tissue takes up less space in our body than fat tissue, our body composition—as well as our weight—determines leanness.

What is body fat percentage?

Body fat percentage is the amount of body fat as a proportion of your body weight. Reducing excess levels of body fat has shown to reduce the risk of certain conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes and cancer.

What is muscle mass and why is it important?

Muscle mass is the total weight of muscle in your body. The muscle mass includes the skeletal, smooth, cardiac muscles and the water contained in these muscles. Muscles play an important role as they act as an engine in consuming energy. As your muscle mass increases, your energy consumption increases helping you reduce excess body fat levels and lose weight in a healthy way.
