The Center for Human Nutrition provides Dual Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry (DXA or DEXA) Body Composition Analysis. DXA body composition analysis is considered the "gold standard" for measurement of body fat including visceral fat estimation, and gives an accurate assessment of overall health by quantifying the basal metabolic rate. Specialized scans of the lumbar spine and femoral neck are available to evaluate Bone Mineral Density, which can be utilized for assessing bone health and risk estimation of osteopenia and osteoporosis.
