Precise DEXA Analysis in Kelowna

A body composition scan is a diagnostic tool used to measure body fat, muscle, and bone density. The scan provides a detailed analysis of the body's different tissue types, allowing individuals to see where weight loss is coming from (e.g., fat, muscle, or bone) and make adjustments to their diet and exercise routine as needed.

Detailed Measurements

DXA scans clearly differentiate between fat and lean muscle mass, providing more accurate and detailed measurements of body composition. These measurements are critical for accurately assessing the state of one’s health and defining successful treatment programs.

Result Tracking

Healthy weight loss involves losing weight in a manner that is safe, sustainable, and supports overall health. An initial baseline scan lets you see exactly where you are when you start, and then track how much body fat is actually lost, and how much muscle is gained.

Monitored Progress

Having regular DEXA scans can help track progress and monitor changes in body composition. By tracking these changes over time, individuals can gain a better understanding of their body composition and make adjustments to their diet and exercise routine as needed to achieve and maintain a healthy weight.
