Both mobile DEXA scans and storefront DEXA scans yield the same results such as visceral fat, body fat %, lean mass, fat mass, total body bone density, and more. Both also include a report review and an account to access your results.
How it Works
Whether you visit one of our mobile DEXA scan locations or our storefront, we will lay you comfortably on your back, fully-clothed for a 5 – 10 minute, head-to-toe, full body scan. Once your scan is complete, our enCORE software analyzes and organizes all of your 50+ metrics into a comprehensive pdf report, which we upload to your BodyComp account so you can access your results at your leisure. We do offer a report review so you can ask questions as well!
Our GE scanner is capable of 15+ measurements such as DEXA Bone Density, AP Spine, Lateral Spine, Dual Femur, etc. but we use it primarily for body composition testing and analysis. In any measurement, our equipment quantifies either bone or tissue or both (Bone, Fat, and Lean Tissue). One of the only 3 component models on the market. Your top line metrics are Body Weight, Body Fat %, Fat Mass (lbs), Lean Mass (lbs), and Bone Mineral Content (BMC). See all other metrics in our sample report.
