New Tool for Weight Management

Body Composition ScanAdvanced Body Composition Scan

Peninsula Imaging is excited to share news with you on a new tool to assist patients with weight management.  The Advanced Body Composition Assessment BodyLogic scan on our new Horizon DXA system visually presents data in a series of easy-to-read graphical reports.  Results from this quick scan are available immediately and use color mapping to identify fat, lean muscle mass and bone.

Reports provide detailed information on  body fat percentage, lean muscle percentage, and visceral fat with a comparison against the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey database of age, gender and race matched peers which allow you to quickly assess and explain the state of the patient’s health.

Weight loss progress can be monitored through regularly scheduled scans and will reveal if weight loss is from stored fat or muscle.  The Rate-of-Change report visually displays and assesses changes in the patient’s body over time whereas adjustments in treatment programs may be made.

Advance Body Composition Assessment serves as an additional tool to monitor patients’ weight loss and weight management programs and to lose body fat, not muscle mass, for a more successful and healthier long-term weight loss.

An imaging order is required for the scan, although it is not covered by insurance.   However, the body composition scan is available for the special price of only $75.00.
