A Dexa Body Scan will tell you the density of bone, fat and lean tissue in any given region of your body and can be used to track body fat levels over time.
How long does a scan take?
The actual scan takes about 3 minutes to complete but you are allocated a 10 minute booking. While lying on the padded bed surface, the scanner arm makes a series of 3 passes over your body. There is no discomfort at all.
What should I wear?
Any comfortable clothing keeping in mind all metal objects such as keys and wallets from the pockets as well as belt buckles and shoes need to be removed. Metal bra clips do not need to be removed. Ideally, wear clothing without metal zips or studs.
