DEXA Speaks Louder than Scales

Sure your weight might be changing. But is it fat, muscle, or bone? DexaFit's DEXA scan is the most trusted method you can use to find out.


The Gold Standard of Body Composition Analysis

Toss aside the calipers, skip the estimates, and forget the tape measure...

  • Dual-energy absorptiometry (DEXA) is the most accurate method for body composition analysis trusted by research and elite sports labs

  • Simple to do and significantly more precise than other methods (including BMI, InBody, BodPod, and hydrostatic weighing)

  • DEXA is FDA-approved and quantifies your lean, fat, and bone mass (to identify osteoporosis), and visceral fat (which correlates to your risk for hormonal imbalances and disease)

  • University and professional sport labs across the country trust DEXA as the most accurate body composition measurement available

Get Answers. Not Estimates.

Because when it comes to your health, precision and accuracy are paramount.

  • Get feedback that helps you lose stubborn body fat, build more muscle, and optimize your health and fitness

  • Map and pinpoint your muscle gains and fat loss in specific areas of the body

  • Track your body's specific physiological response to your diet or fitness plan

  • Discover your bone health and risk for osteoporosis 

  • Identify personal long-term health risks, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hormonal imbalances, and more

Common alternative methods, such as BMI, Bioimpedance, Bod Pod, and hydrostatic weighing, are often used incorrectly as a surrogate for body composition health. But they can be dangerously misleading.

For example, if you have a BMI of 25 kg/m2, you may have a body fat percentage anywhere from 10-35 percent. If you use other alternative methods, you may see a margin of error range from 5 to 15%.

Whereas as a DEXA scan’s accuracy and precision ranges from a 1 to 2 percent margin of error, it also provides additional information that BMI and alternative testing methods cannot, including:

  • Visceral Adipose Tissue (VAT), which is leading predictor of longevity, metabolic syndrome, and cardiovascular disease

  • Skeletal strength, your risk for osteoporosis, and how you compare to others like you

  • Muscle symmetry to identify how your lean, fat, and bone mass compares in each region of your body

  • “Skinny fat” and sarcopenia risks, which has been found to be an important predictor of cognitive performance
