DEXA Body Scan.
Our incredible DEXA Body Composition Scan, available in Perth, allows us to see inside your body to monitor your fitness, athletic condition and assess for serious health risks.
A DEXA Body Scan is a bone density scan that determines the exact makeup of your body including fat, muscle and bone percentages.
Having a Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry Scan (DEXA Body Scan), before and after a weight loss or fitness program is a great way to accurately track your progress and see the benefits.
The advanced technology makes the DEXA Body Scan much more informative than just standing on your ordinary scales, or gimmicky fat measuring gadgets. Many athletes and keen sportspeople use a DEXA Body Scan to fine tune their diet and training regimes.
With our DEXA Body Scan we will be able to check that your bone density is not dangerously low. Osteopaenia or osteoporosis, caused by low bone mineral density, can greatly increase your risk of fractures, but can be treated when caught early.
What are the risks?
A DEXA scan is very safe and has no side effects. The dose of X-ray used for our body composition scan is very small, less than 1/10th of a chest X-ray. This means that the risks of being exposed to the radiation of the scan are very low. The scan itself takes between 10 and 30 minutes and there are no after effects.
What are the costs involved with a DEXA Body Scan?
We charge $140 for a weekday DEXA body composition scan in Perth, which includes a 20 minute consultation with our dietitian and nutritionist, and a full explanation of your results. You may be eligible for a private health insurance rebate for the dietitian consult. Without a dietitian consultation, a weekday body composition scan in Perth will cost $90. For weekend appointments the fees are $120 for a DEXA scan. Before your scan, you will see one of our doctors for a consultation and referral form (bulk-billed), so no referral from your own doctor is required.
