Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (Dexa) Scan
As part of your personalized, comprehensive health assessment, your physician may recommend a Dexa scan. Dexa uses a high-precision type of X-ray (with an extremely low level of radiation) that can assess body composition in a convenient and non-invasive way to create a comprehensive report which includes your body fat percentage, fat mass and lean mass, bone mineral density, bone loss, resting metabolic rate and more. Dexa takes the guesswork out of establishing your baseline health and fitness level, supporting Harrison’s goals of optimizing your health and performance. It is considered the “gold standard” for assessing bone density and body composition.
A Dexa scan, when indicated, is provided in-house at Harrison at no cost to a client as part of its Comprehensive Health Assessment.
