My doctor has advised a DEXA scan. Can you do it?

If your doctor has advised a DEXA scan, then it is highly likely that they want you to have a bone density scan to detect osteopenia or osteoporosis.

Bodyscan does not perform bone density scans, only body composition scans.

However, if your doctor wants to know about your body fat and body composition (perhaps he is advising you to lose weight) then we are definitely the place for that! You don’t need a separate referral from your doctor, just make your Baseline booking online.
