DEXA — dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry — scans provide a unique three-compartment model for the most accurate and precise segmented analysis of body fat percentage and lean tissue (arms, legs, trunk and total body), visceral fat quantification in the abdominal region, and bone density scoring for key regions of interest. Traditionally, DEXA has been known as a bone density modality. It’s become recognized, though, as a machine that offers a dynamic range of applications in addition to bone mineral density. They include baseline testing and progress monitoring in areas such as: 1. Weight Loss 2. Fitness 3. Visceral Fat quantification for cardio-metabolic risk assessment 4. Muscle symmetry for athletic performance, growth, and development.
