Can I have a DEXA scan with a Pacemaker or metal implants?

If you have any implants of any material, such as a hip or knee replacement or a Pacemaker or stents, again, don’t worry, the scan can go ahead as normal. Metal implants will show up as dense bone on your Bodyscan report but they will not affect the fat and lean data. There is no risk to the operation of your Pacemaker.
