Welcome to the DexaCan clinic
This advanced diagnostic tool can evaluate levels of physical fitness, risk for developing osteoporotic fractures, and deliver precise measurements of segmental body fat and muscle distribution.
The DXA scan can help inform individualized training and nutritional programs for athletes.
The DXA scan provides an accurate picture of muscle, bone, and fat mass to aid in the design of customized weight loss programs for patients.
DEXA scans can be used to screen for calcium build-up in major blood vessels, known as abdominal aortic calcification (AAC) - a possible marker of increased risk for cardiovascular events such as heart attacks and strokes, particularly in women.
DEXA is today’s established standard for measuring bone mineral density (BMD). It is commonly used to identify osteoporosis, and to determine a person’s risk for developing fractures.
The DEXA Scan is a quick, low dose X-ray exam that measures the three main tissues of the human body: fat, lean mass, and bone.
The color-coded system makes it easy for athletes and patients to see exactly where they have fat and muscle on their bodies and provides a visual comparison of changes in the body over time.
The initial scan can be used as a baseline, and performance can be tracked with additional scans throughout the duration of the training or weight loss program. Our post-scan consultation can then translate your results into realistic plans to maintain a good ratio between fat and lean muscle mass or to help prevent the development of osteoporosis.
