DEXA Body Composition Scans

As part of our commitment to your success with weight loss and weight maintenance, Advanced Medical Weight Loss offers Hologic DEXA body-composition scans at a reasonable cost. DEXA (dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry) body-composition scans are the gold standard for measuring a person’s fat and lean body mass. Usual measurements of body-fat percentage with bio-impedance, hydrostatic weighing and calipers are limited by operator error and a lack of precision.

A DEXA body-composition scan done prior to starting a diet can accurately determine how much weight a person needs to lose. A repeat DEXA body-composition scan done later in the diet can determine if excess muscle mass is being lost during the diet. As a dieter approaches their ideal weight, a DEXA body-composition scan can precisely determine what the dieter’s lowest healthy weight should be.

Please refer to the pricing page on this website for prices for the DEXA body-composition scans.

Why Should I Get a DEXA Body-Composition Scan?

We’ve all heard of the BMI index when it comes to body composition health. The other alternatives that are common are Bioimpedance, Bod Pod, and hydrostatic weighing. When it comes to weight loss, these are often very misleading.

A DEXA body-composition scan, however, is much more accurate and precise. The above alternatives typically have a margin of error around 5-15%, whereas a DEXA scan only has a 1-2% margin of error. If you’re serious about losing weight, a DEXA body-composition scan is a great starting point.
