What is a DEXA scan?
DEXA (Dual-energy X-ray Absorptiometry) is research grade technology which provides accurate and precise measurement of body fat, lean mass, and bone density.
It is considered the GOLD standard of body fat testing and body composition analysis and is used worldwide by elite athletes and teams like the Green Bay Packers, the British Triathlon team, and is used at the US Olympic training center in Colorado Springs.
The scan is fast, highly accurate, and requires no special clothing. It takes about 10 minutes and exposes you to less radiation than a 1 hour flight.
