DXA scanner

Dual-energy X-Ray Absorptiometry (DXA). This involves the measurement of bone density, fat tissue and lean tissue (muscle + organs). The device uses small doses of radiation so checks are performed before scanning a patient or participant. The measurement is very quick and provides images of whole body skeletons for bone density and whole body soft tissue outlines for fat and lean mass. The results are fed back at the end of the scan.
