Dexa Bone Density Scanning

DEXA is a simple, quick and non-invasive scan and the most accurate method for diagnosing osteoporosis. It is also commonly used to assess an individual's risk for developing fractures.

Dexa Body Composition Scanning

The DEXA scanner can also a produce a Bodyscan DEXA report which gives meaningful data on the amount and distribution of fat and lean mass in your body. Used by sports persons or as part of a prescribed weight loss programme, an initial DEXA scan provides an accurate picture of body composition, enabling you or your coach/physician to design a fitness and macronutrient regime based on increasing muscle, decreasing fat or both. Subsequent scans provide trend data - an accurate measure of progress to confirm and validate your training programme.
