Total Body Scans Now Available to Community Members

The Clinical & Translational Science Institute’s (CTSI) Adult Translational Research Unit (A-TRU) now offers DXA scanning services to any member of the community. This is a valuable resource, providing an accurate assessment of unique, individual body composition and key information for tracking personal health and fitness. You do not need to be part of a research protocol, nor require an order from your physician, to utilize our DXA scanning services.

Body composition measurements utilizing DXA precisely monitors results of your personal weight management and exercise efforts. Total body DXA scans offer a detailed look at overall and regional percent body fat, lean mass, and fat free mass. Our iDXA capabilities provide additional information including measuring region fat percentages (android and gynoid), and estimate tissue density around organs (visceral adipose tissue).

Schedule an appointment: DXA scanning services are available by appointment only. Call (414) 805-7306 to set up an appointment. Directions and pre-scanning instructions are emailed to you once your appointment is scheduled.

Cost: $120 for your initial scan, $80 for each follow-up scan(s).

Payment: We accept cash, checks and major credit cards. Please note: DXA scanning services cannot be billed to your insurance provider and are not considered part of your medical care.

DISCLAIMER: DXA scanning is not intended to determine any medical diagnosis nor to provide treatment for any condition(s). Furthermore, results of your scan are not medically interpreted and should not be used as an indicator of any medical condition. If you believe, you have a medical condition that requires a DXA scan, please contact your healthcare provider to seek further care.
