DXA Body Composition body fat loss

DXA scan showing body fat loss over time

Body composition measurement using a DXA scan (also called a DEXA scan) is a simple 15 minute test that provides a comprehensive look at your body fat, muscle mass and bone. In addition to scientifically validated accuracy, a DXA scan will provide you with a better understanding of how your fat tissue and muscle are distributed, allowing you to identify health risks and more accurately track changes in body composition.
