i KNOW dexa is dual energy xray abdomitry. And its supposed to measure body fat muscle mass ect. Problem is I call up this medical center called Radiology Asociates and ask them about it. They said DEXA is a bone scan to see if some one has osteoparosis. They said it doesnt show body fat levels. I told them yes it does so I talked to teh doctor in charge there and he even said the same thing. Is there two different types of DEXA scans or something? Do I need a special one done somewhere else? Or do the people at the doctors not know WTF they are talking about. I cant even find a dunk test in my area either.
