Body Measure (Dexa Scan)

The GOLD STARNDARD in Body Composition and Bone Density
The Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DEXA) scan is a means to measure bone mineral density, total body fat and total muscle mass.

How does it work?

Two x-ray beams at differing energy levels pass through the tissues of the body. Fat, muscle and bone each have different attenuating factors, i.e. different levels of absorption due to their unique densities. It is these attenuating factors that allow the DEXA to calculate relative masses of each tissue type in each region (trunk, arms, legs).

It is as simple as lying fully clothed (removing all metal from your body) on the DEXA table and allowing the scan to go over your body for approximately 5 minutes. It is a comfortable, quick, accessible, non-invasive and pain free way to get immediate answers!

Safety

DEXA scans are safe.

Radiation surrounds us on a daily basis. To put the level of radiation from the DEXA in perspective:

An average Australian is subject to 6.3 uSv background radiation per day. The DEXA scan give a radiation dose of 0.2 uSv per scan ie. 32 x DEXA scans back-to-back is the equivalent of your normal daily background radiation exposure!
