|Post subject:||DEXA Body Scan Test|
I had a DEXA Body Scan (Hologic) performed, but am puzzled about interpreting the numerous results. The facility where I had this performed (Washington Institute of Sports Medicine http://www.washington-institute.com ) provided some basic information and interpretation. Can any of you refer me to a link where detailed DEXA result interpretation is available?
I am particularly confused about the visceral fat measurement. There seem to be no reference ranges, although the basic interpretation is the lower the visceral fat, the better. Here are my results:
VAT mass 890 grams ( 2 lbs)
VAT volume 962 cm3
VAT area 185 cm2
Do any of you recommend any home Body Composition Scales. If I continue to get DEXA scans, they cost $90 each. How often should I get one done, that is not too frequent or too infrequent?
If you need further information about me to make an informed recommendation, let me know and I'll provide it.
