DEXA Body Composition Scan for Athletic Performance

The body scan with the DXA system, helps inform individualized training and nutritional programs for athletes.

Measure Muscle, Fat & Bone Mass

The Advanced Body Composition report provides a color mapping of bone, fat and lean mass that can be used to show athletes exactly where they are losing fat and gaining muscle over time.

Ultimately, data from the DEXA scan can provide a more accurate and precise way to prescribe and track athletic training and nutrition plans.

With the scan data, athletic programs, physical trainers and coaches can:

Advanced Body Composition Assessment in Kelowna

Dual Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry (DEXA / DXA) is widely regarded as one of the most proven and reliable technologies for measuring body composition.The scan provides detailed measurements of the body by looking at bone density, lean mass and fat mass.

Defining Training Programs

The information generated from the scan is critical for accurately assessing the state of a patient or athlete’s health and defining successful treatment plans and training programs.

Muscle Asymmetries

As well as using a DEXA Scan for basic body fat measurement, athletes often use the scan to pick up muscle asymmetries between their left and right sides. These asymmetries throw weight distribution off, cause muscle miscoordination, and create unnatural stresses that lead to injury.

Complete Assessment

This scan offers a more complete and accurate assessment compared to one-dimensional anthropometric exams like body mass index (BMI), bioimpedance, bod-pod measurements, and hydrostatic weighing.

DEXA Scan For Training

Fitness enthusiasts, athletes, and dieters often use body composition scans to get a baseline of where they are now, and to objectively measure their progress.

Body Composition Scan Influence On Athletes

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a widely used measure of body weight in relation to height, but it has several limitations when it comes to assessing health, fitness, and disease risk. A DEXA scan provides a more complete picture of an individual’s health and fitness status.

Who Should Get a DEXA Scan?

A DXA assessment is suitable for people on weight management programs, athletes in training as well as men and women at risk of osteoporosis and bone fracture.

It is also used for monitoring certain diseases such as Sarcopenia and Lipodystrophy and the effects of some medical therapies.
