What is Whole Body Composition?

Available at MIC, Whole Body Composition DXA analysis gives you an accurate measurement of fat mass, lean body mass and bone mass with minimal radiation exposure.

Understanding your whole body composition is a valuable clinical tool in the management of long-term health and fitness.  By assessing changes in body composition over time, professional and recreational athletes are able to customize their training to achieve specific physiological goals.

Whole body composition analysis is not covered by Alberta Health Care. The fee for this service is $60.

Exam preparation instructions

Unless otherwise stated by Central Booking, or your referring practitioner, there is no preparation required for whole body composition procedures.
