The bone density measurement is taken using a DXA system – DXA stands for Dual-Energy X-ray Absorptiometry. The DXA system takes an x-ray image and your results are compared to normal bone mineral density values based on your age, gender, and ethnicity to determine if you have high, normal, or low bone density. This information, combined with risk factors and previous fractures is used to determine your risk of future fractures.
The Advanced Body Composition® report, available with the Body Logic scan, offers comprehensive measurements of the body, including the precise location of bone, fat and muscle mass. This document breaks down the data so you can address questions about the report with our staff at the Center. This scan is highly beneficial to patients with metabolic syndrome, PCOS, obesity, anovulation caused by hormone imbalance and for customers who are in a weight loss program, athletes, police and fire dept. personnel.
