On the path to losing weight, almost nothing is as useful as a DEXA Scan. A DEXA/DXA Scan is a full body composition scan that measures body fat and muscle mass, and Cenegenics Boston is your best source for getting a DEXA Scan Boston.
Maybe you are brand new to a health & fitness lifestyle, or maybe you have been going to a gym for a while but not experiencing the results you desire. A DEXA Scan is a great tool to get you on track. How can you know if your training regimen is working unless you know if you are actually losing real fat and gaining muscle? The number on the scale means nothing.
Whatever stage you are in, we are here to answer your DEXA questions:
What is a DEXA Scan?
The DEXA (duel-energy X-ray absorptiometry) scan provides one of the most highly accurate measurements of body composition available, registering fat and lean mass distribution throughout the entire body. In simple terms, it is capable of detailing overall, as well as regional, fat mass, lean mass, and bone mass.

How Does It Work?
All you have to do is lie face up on a table while dressed in snug fitting clothing. Then the scanning device makes a single pass over the body. It is fast and non invasive.
Is the Radiation Harmful?
The DEXA Scan imparts only about as much radiation per scan as a TSA body imaging device. It is perfectly safe, and the benefits are enormous.
