A DXA (Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry) Body Composition Scan uses advanced scanning technology to accurately measure lean muscle, fat and bone mass for the whole body as well as separate body parts. Body Composition Scanning using DXA has been proven to be significantly more accurate than other technologies including bioelectrical impedance and skinfold thickness measurements.
A DXA Body Composition Scan is the solution for people wanting highly accurate body composition information to assist with their fitness training or weight-loss program. DXA scanning is able to provide your baseline measurements, monitor results over time and assess progress towards your goals. The detailed whole body and regional lean muscle, fat and bone mass composition data can be used to fine tune your personal body fitness or sculpting programs set by your personal trainers, dietitians or exercise physiologists.
The results from a DXA Body Composition Scan are used to develop a personalised and targeted program. Sequential measurements are used to modify the program to achieve key goals and produce optimum results for maximum performance.
The DXA imaging service is overseen by a specialist physician and performed by qualified technologists and radiographers.
