FAQS

What is a DEXA Scan

The DEXA uses small amounts of radiation to produce a whole picture of the body’s fat mass, lean mass and bone mass. In addition, the DEXA provides regional body fat results for the arms, legs, android (waist) and gynoid (hips), and can also do a reading for abdominal, or visceral, fat (depending on the machine). Visceral fat, or VAT, has been linked to metabolic disturbances, increased risk for cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes.

What results will I receive?

Unless noted otherwise, the results will also include a Visceral Fat/Abdominal Fat (VAT) reading.

For T Score & Z Score ask at your appointment.

How can I prepare for my DEXA?

  • Wear comfortable clothes, such as gym attire.
  • Do not wear any items with metal or hard plastic, such as buttons, zippers, jewelry, watches, hair clips, bras with metal clasps or underwires.
  • Inform the test administrator if you have any metal in your body, such as a pin or replacement joint.
  • No fasting required. Food and water intake has little to no impact on the accuracy of DEXA scan results.
  • Please note that DEXA scans do subject you to small amounts of radiation. A whole body scan produces a level of radiation equivalent to flying by airplane from New York to California.
  • Due to the radiation described above, if you believe you may be pregnant, please refrain from doing the DEXA scan.

What can I expect at my DEXA appointment?

You can expect a 15 minute full body scan paired with an overview of your results and possible solutions for next steps on your health journey.
