Bone Density & Body Composition

Now Offering State-of-the-Art Bone Densitometry (Bone Mineral Density Screening) and Body Composition Analysis, Featuring GE’s Prodigy* Technology. 

Bone Mineral Densitometry and Comprehensive DXA Body Composition Analysis

Bone Mineral Densitometry

Bone Mineral Densitometry, more commonly referred to as bone density screening, measures bone mass or bone density. It assesses the amount of calcium present in the bone. It is often used to determine if a patient has osteoporosis, and to what degree.  It also estimates a patient’s risk of fractures. If diagnosed with osteoporosis, your doctor will determine which treatment options are available and best suited for you.

Comprehensive DXA Body Composition Analysis

CoreScan, GE’s breakthrough gold standard technology, uses DXA body composition analysis to measure fat mass, lean mass, and bone mass of each segment of the body. This technology quantifies patients’ visceral fat to help in the management of cardiometabolic diseases associated with excess visceral fat – including type 2 diabetes. This will help show the benefits of improving diet, exercise, and lifestyle.
