What’s the Accuracy of a Body Fat Scan?

Body fat scans can give you a more complete picture of your overall health, something a number on scale doesn’t quite tell you. It’s a more accurate indicator of health because it measures bone density, lean mass, and fat. You can make more informed decisions about your nutrition and exercise when you understand all of the different aspects that go into it. A DEXA body scan only takes about 5 – 10 minutes to complete using radiography technology that provides results in as little as 30 minutes. This is the best method for learning about your body composition and identifying when you might have osteoporosis and bone fractures. Knowing your body’s framework is important if your goal is to reach optimal health. We’ll work together to set custom goals that are realistic for your body type and lifestyle. We will suggest nutritional habits to follow and workout regimens that will be beneficial in achieving your weight loss goals in the most effective way.

Our DEXA scans measure aspects of your body composition such as:

  • Approximate metabolic rate at rest
  • Certified body weight
  • Total lean body mass
  • Body fat percentage
