DEXASCAN - Explore your body from the inside

Hey, my dear
I come to you today with a new post regarding the human body, the body of each of you, mine too. Everyone seemed to be bothering with the question of how much fat is found on his body, if all our muscles are in order, or if there are dangerous fats on our body.
Help and answer to this question can be found at https://dexascan.com/. In a precise way, you can scan your body composition (muscle, fat, bones) there. This is a great option for people who train, want to lose a few kilos, increase muscle mass to see where it is now and measure further progress. This scan also shows more advanced things such as muscle asymmetry (which can lead to injuries) as well as the presence of visceral fat (a dangerous fat accumulating around the organs).

I had the opportunity to participate in such a study in London and I learned a lot about my body. Now I can better care for them so that it is healthy and beautiful.



If you want to participate in such a scan, it is enough in such a search engine that is on this page to enter the zip code and find the nearest location where it is possible to do such a scan:

And now a little more information about DEXA SCAN:

What is a 
DEXA Scan?

The DEXA Scan is the clinical gold standard for measuring fat, muscle, and bone density. Find nearby locations and pricing, to get you an on-the-spot assessment of your body composition.
A DEXA Scan (Dual-Enerxy X-ray Absorptiometry), uses two different types of waves that are reflected by lean muscle, and bone differently. The scanner uses this information to create a detailed map of your body and measure your body composition

How a DEXA Body Composition Scan Works

The total scan takes about 7 minutes, where you’ll be lying flat on the scanning bed. The DEXA is the ‘gold standard’ body composition testing. It has the greatest precision and shorter scan times.



DEXA is more accurate and more reproducible than any other body composition measurement

STEP 1

Find a location near you

STEP 2

Schedule an appointment

STEP 3

Prepare! Do not take calcium supplements for at least 24 hours before the exam and avoid wearing clothes with metal zippers or hooks.

STEP 4

Lay flat on the scanning bed for roughly 7 minutes

STEP 5

Directly after you’re scanned, you’ll get your results and will walk through them with a professional.



Receive and understand your results on the same day of your scan. with healthcare professional.

What type of results should I expect?
  • Total body bone mineral density
  • Total body muscle mass
  • Total body fat mass
  • Total body bone mass
  • Total body fat percentage
  • Muscle and fat mass in the trunk
  • Muscle and fat mass in your right and left arm
  • Muscle and fat mass in your right and left leg
  • Central abdominal fat measurement

How a DEXA Bone Density Scan Works

A Bone Densitometry test is used to measure how strong your bones are. It is commonly used to identify osteoporosis, a condition that causes a decrease in the density of bones resulting in fragility, and to determine a person’s risk for developing fractures. Risk for developing fracture is determined by age, weight and family/personal history. Talk to your doctor before scheduling a bone density scan.
DEXA is today’s established standard for measuring bone mineral density (BMD) and is most often performed on the spine, hips or forearm.

STEP 1

Talk to your doctor about your eligibility for Bone Density Testing

STEP 2

Your doctor will recommend a nearby Dexa Scan provider that is covered by your health insurance.

STEP 3

Schedule an appointment for the scan and an additional appointment with your doctor to discuss the results.

STEP 4

Prepare! Do not take calcium supplements for at least 24 hours before the exam and avoid wearing clothes with metal zippers or hooks.

STEP 5

Lay flat on the scanning bed for roughly 10 to 20 minutes

STEP 6

Discuss your results with your health care provider.



Most Bone Densitometry will focus on your hips and spine. You'll be asked to use a foam block to capture your hip in different positions.

What type of results should I expect?
T score: This number shows your Bone Mineral Density compared to young adults of the same gender in peak health.
  • -1 and above: this is considered a normal score
  • between -1 and -2.5: this is classified as osteopenia (low bone mass)
  • below -2.5: this is classified as osteoporosis (extremely low bone mass)
Z score: This number shows your Bone Mineral Density compared to other people in your age group of the same size and gender. If this score is more than 2 standard deviations above or below average, it may indicate a need for further medical tests.


Peripheral DEXA scans your doctor may recommend if DXA isn’t available
  • pDXA (peripheral dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry) DEXA for the wrist or heel
  • SXA (single energy X-ray absorptiometry) Uses one X-ray wave instead of two and is usually done on the heel
  • QUS (quantitative ultrasound) uses sound waves to measure density, usually at the heel
  • pQCT (peripheral quantitative computed tomography) measures the wrist
  • RA (radiographic absorptiometry) uses an X-ray of the hand

  13. It sounds very attractive, I have been wondering how much my muscles weigh since I started training. I haven't got such an opportunity to check it with my bathroom scales, so this is undeniably an incredible opportunity.
