Body Composition & Bone Density Scanning

Measure your fat & muscle with precision



DEXA is a highly accurate, medical-grade technology that uses a very low dose of ionising radiation (X-ray) to give the most precise measurement of your body composition in less than 7 minutes. As well as accuracy, DEXA is incredibly reliable and reproducible, unlike bio-impedance scales, BodPod, skin fold calipers and underwater weighing.

Therefore you can be sure that changes in your body fat and muscle are real and not the result of hydration, moisture, poor calibration or human error.

Fat Loss

How much fat do you have exactly? DEXA is the best way to get a highly accurate baseline measurement of body fat today and then track fat loss overtime.

Visceral Fat Risk

Usually referred to as 'bad' fat, visceral fat surrounds your internal organs and increases your risk of type-2 diabetes, heart disease, colon cancer and stroke. It increases rapidly with age but you can have dangerous amounts even in your twenties.

Muscle Gain

DEXA measures lean body mass and shows if your muscle is evenly balanced on both sides and across arms, legs and trunk. Bodyscan will track how much muscle you gain, which is a slower and more variable process than fat loss.

Excellent experience. The scan itself was easy, Louise was very friendly and explained everything really well. The breadth and depth of information is great and is really going to help me track and understand my progress. I've already recommended the process to friends.

Louise was very good. Walked me through everything- in particular talking through the report and highlighting key items.

Louise was great - very knowledgeable and patient and took loads of time to explain the report in full. It’s much more detailed and useful that any other fat/muscle measure I’ve done before and will be the new key measure of progress in my training programme.
