Body Composition Scan
Advanced Center for Orthopedics and Plastic Surgery provides body composition scanning using DEXA technology. Far more accurate than the standard body mass index (BMI) assessment or even caliper test, this advanced scan can determine your body’s composition of fat and lean muscle.
Commonly used by sports teams to assess their athletes, DEXA body composition scanning takes into account your bone density and muscle mass rather than simply determining your body mass by figuring your height and weight. For instance, consider two very different people: one overweight, the other an elite professional athlete. Both may be the same height and weight, but because their body composition is different, simply determining their BMI will not give you an accurate picture of their health.
Whether you’re an athlete trying to improve your game, or you’re simply trying to lose weight and become healthier, you can benefit from a DEXA body composition scan.
