DEXA

Total body scans with DXA provide accurate and precise measurements of total body composition, including bone mineral content, lean muscle mass, fat tissue mass, and body fat percentage.

Why body composition?

Most people are used to stepping on a scale at every visit to a doctor’s office, but monitoring weight alone, while helpful, is at best crude and an imprecise way to asses your health. Today’s body composition measurement tools provide far more complete and precise information.

Body composition using DEXA

Body composition measurements provide you, with accuracy and precision, looking beyond weight and traditional body mass index (BMI) to determine and monitor distribution of body fat, bone, and lean muscle mass. Body composition DXA exams provide useful regional and total body information to you!

Your body composition results

Your total body composition is calculated for various regions (arms, legs, trunk, and total). Results are displayed as percent body fat, fat mass and lean muscle mass. Your bone mineral density (BMD) will also be calculated, providing additional information about your bone health. Over time, these results can be monitored to better understand how changes in diet, lifestyle, exercise, or other interventions are influencing your body composition.

Weight management

Motivates you to achieve your goals by showing tangible results from your scans.

Dexa scans can be a powerful motivational tool for weight-loss. By using a Dexa scan to monitor weight loss you can see exactly how you are loosing weight, for example; if you lose 20 pounds, it could be from losing 20 pounds of fat, or from losing 30 pounds of fat and gaining 10 pounds of muscle. This is especially helpful as you reach plateaus on the scale. The Dexa can show you if you are continuing to lose fat and adding muscle.

RMR

Metabolism is the process of converting food (calories) into energy. The efficiency with which your body does this is referred to as your metabolic rate.

Many factors affect a person’s metabolic rate: weight, age, body composition, hormone levels, and gender making it a highly unique number.

Understanding your body’s unique metabolic rate will allow your you to customize your weight loss or maintenance program around your needs.

It can screen for a slowed metabolism that may explain frustrated attempts to lose weight in the past.

It can reveal changes in your metabolism during the weight loss process that can help trouble shoot a frustrating plateau.

Once you reach your goal, an RMR measurement can give you the precise caloric prescription for maintenance to help you sustain that goal weight.

How does the test work?

KORR Metabolic Analyzers utilize the same technology as ICU metabolic testing. Because every calorie a person consumes requires a fixed amount of oxygen to be converted to energy, the KORR Analyzer measures the oxygen you consume to calculate calories burned. All of the air exhaled by the client must be collected to measure oxygen consumption. Two one-way valves in the KORR MetaBreather ensure that only fresh air is inhaled and all exhaled gas passes through the hose and into the machine.

A nose-clip ensures that all exhaled air is analyzed.
