Weight and body mass index (BMI) are limited measurements of an individual’s health. DXA body composition analysis is considered a “gold standard”1 for health assessment since it goes beyond weight and BMI to deliver an accurate and precise measurement of the body. By quantifying the fat mass, lean mass, and bone of each segment of the body, GE DXA systems can help show the benefits of improving diet, exercise, and lifestyle. And now with GE’s CoreScan application, DXA systems can quantify visceral fat to help in the management of cardiometabolic diseases associated with excess visceral fat – including type 2 diabetes.
