Bone Mineral Density (BMD)
A bone mineral density scan detects risk factors for Osteoporosis – a disease weakening the bones to a point where they are vulnerable to breaking.
Obtaining a baseline in a younger patient can allow us to detect loss earlier. Regaining lost bone is significantly more difficult than maintaining existing bone, so early detection is key.
The Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DEXA) full-body scanner is the gold standard and most accurate test on the market used to measure your bone mineral density and body composition.
ReGen’s body composition scan provides a proportion and distribution of fat and muscle, allowing you to customize your diet and workout. It identifies resting metabolic rate and recommended calorie intakes by activity level, as well as proportions of macronutrients and tracks post-injury recovery by quantifying localized muscle loss and gain. The Visceral Adipose Tissue (VAT) measure shows the elevated risk for disorders such as cancer, diabetes, coronary disease, and other health concerns.
