What is DEXA scanning?
Dual Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry (DEXA) scanning is considered one of the most accurate tests you can do to determine bone density, body fat and muscle distribution.
The DEXA bone density scan uses two very low-dose x-ray beams at differing energy levels to create images of your body. A bone density scan measures bone strength, enabling your doctor to evaluate your risk for fracture and osteoporosis. A body composition scan reports on your fat/muscle ratios and visceral fat measurements to help with health and fitness tracking.
