Body Composition with DXA Scan

The advanced body composition assessment provides information about body composition in eye-opening visual detail.

The advanced report provides a comprehensive look at the body, including bone, fat, muscle imbalances and more. This advanced diagnostic tool can measure the amount and distribution of lean tissue mass, fat mass, and bone mineral density, providing valuable information about an individual’s metabolic health, risk for chronic diseases, and physical function.

InvestMed’s proactive body composition screenings can be used to screen for calcium build-up in major blood vessels, and measure both subcutaneous fat (fat under the skin) and visceral fat (fat that surrounds the organs in the abdominal cavity), which can both be associated with diseases like diabetes, hypertension, and more.

Over 3.4 million Canadians are living with diagnosed diabetes.

Advanced Body Composition Assessment

Accurate measurement of body composition provides valuable information for assessing, monitoring the human body.

This advanced diagnostic tool can evaluate your levels of physical fitness, deliver precise measurements of segmental body fat and muscle distribution, and assess your risk for developing osteoporotic fractures.

The DEXA Scan is a quick, low dose X-ray exam that measures the three main tissues of the human body: fat, lean mass, and bone. Results show you:

  • Overall body fat, lean tissue (muscle), bone weight and percentages
  • Breakdowns for both legs, arms and your torso
  • DEXA scan image showing where your body fat and muscle is distributed
  • Visceral fat (the dangerous fat around organs)

Long Term Health Risks

A DXA scan is a preventative test that can monitor increased health risks due to poor body composition. The precise imaging can give a detailed breakdown of body mass, from the weight of bones to the total fat and lean tissue.

What To Expect From A Dexa Scan

A person does not need to prepare — they can eat and drink as usual on the day of the procedure. However, anyone taking a calcium supplement may need to stop taking it around 24 hours before the scan.
