The Bone Densitometry and Body Composition Laboratory provides investigators with
the opportunity to measure both bone density and body composition using a state of
the art dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) unit. This measurement can assist
in enhancing our understanding of the relationship between bone density and body composition
(body fat & lean tissue components) and various measures of physical performance and
health. Testing is typically performed before and following a variety of interventions
including exercise training, dietary modification, and nutritional supplementation.
