About DexaCan Kelowna

Welcome to the DexaCan clinic

We offer a state-of-the-art body composition assessment, also known as a DXA or DEXA scan, that provides information about bone health, body fat, and muscle mass.

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.

Our Kelowna clinic serves patients from all provinces and territories with rapid access to private care. Contact us now for a consultation. No referral is required.

Advanced Body Composition Assessment

DEXA scan provides the most precise information about body fat, muscle, and bone composition, and helps track changes in body composition over time.

Advanced Imaging DXA Scan

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.

Please contact us by phone or form with any questions or to schedule an appointment.

Our Process - What Happens During a DXA Scan?

A whole body composition scan can take as little as 3 minutes. During your exam, you will lie comfortably on a padded table while the DXA unit, an X-ray system, quickly scans your body. Radiation exposure during this exam is extremely low and involves no injections, invasive procedures or pain.
Unlike some other types of tests, you won’t have to lie inside a closed tunnel or ring. Instead, you’ll lie on an open X-ray table as the scanner passes over your body. When the test is over, you’ll be able to go home.

Who Should Get a Body Composition DXA Scan

As this test will provide detailed information regarding various components in your body, anyone can use it.

If you are simply curious about your health, planning to get healthier, or losing weight, you could get this scan in order to gain the best possible insight regarding your body composition.
