  1. Densitometer


  1. Resource Description
    "Most people are used to stepping on a scale at every visit to a doctor's examining room. But monitoring weight – while helpful – is at best a crude and imprecise way to assess a patient’s health. Today's body composition measurement tools provide far more complete and precise information that can help support diagnoses and guide treatment, and can even help athletes make decisions on the training regimens they use to achieve the best performance. Body composition measurement with DXA can look beyond weight and traditional body mass index (BMI) to determine body fat distribution – an important risk factor in a variety of serious diseases."
