Body composition analysis

Too much fat can lead to serious health problems. Body composition analysis measures the ratio of lean body mass to fat, providing valuable data for individuals beginning a workout regimen or making a complete lifestyle makeover. It can also serve as a tool for athletes who are aiming for optimal body composition to enhance their athletic performance. Ask your physician to order a body composition analysis for you today.

Bone density testing (DXA)

Bone density scanning is an enhanced form of X-ray technology used to measure bone loss. DXA is the only test that can diagnose osteoporosis and track the effects of its treatment. DXA is most often performed on the lower spine and hips because they have the greatest risk for fractures.
