You're already on the road to better health and a higher level of fitness. But are you fully prepared to really take control of your body -- not just by losing weight, but with a total picture of your actual body composition?

The kind of technology that would do this is called a DXA Scan, which stands for "Dual-energy X-ray Absorptiometry. This technology gives regional values, not just total body fat. It takes a picture of your body, and resembles an x-ray. The DXA scan is commonly used when checking for bone mineral density like for detecting osteoporosis. This is a painless, non-invasive procedure. It requires no special preparation or special clothing and is performed by a technologist. Specially trained experts analyze and create a detailed report, telling you exactly how much muscle or fat you have in a given area of the body, as well as how much bone.
