DXA / DEXA Scan

Bone Density, Muscle Mass + Body Fat Composition

A DXA/DEXA Scan is a dual energy scan to assess low bone density and possible structural deterioration of the skeletal system as well as body fat composition and lean muscle mass. A DXA/DEXA Scan utilizes ionizing low energy x-ray and is performed by a radiology technologist at The Feng Clinic for Dr. Feng’s analysis.

  • Bone density scans are typically done every two years.
  • Body fat and muscle mass composition scanning can be done as needed to track your fitness progress.
  • The amount of x-ray exposure is less than the radiation exposure from flying from the East coast to the West coast.
  • Equivalent to about 1/10th of the exposure in a chest x-ray exam.
  • The DXA scan is non-invasive and painless. It only takes a few minutes to complete.
