DXA imaging provides a two-dimensional measurement of:
- Total body bone mass
- Total body lean mass and fat mass
- Regional bone mass and density
The Body Composition Core uses Hologic densitometers (Hologic Inc., Bedford, MA) to perform DXA scans on both clinical and research patients.
Scans available include: whole body, AP lumbar spine, lateral spine, proximal femur or hip, forearm and distal femur.
