For a bone density scan, items that might interfere with the results will be removed from the area to be scanned. In most places, this is your hip or hips, and your low back. Items that interfere are buttons, zips and other metallic items. Naturally, we provide a gown to protect your modesty!
In the case of a body composition scan, you will need to disrobe to underwear, and will be given a special gown to wear. We pride ourselves on the accuracy of our body composition scan, and are meticulous in our approach, as the scan needs to be repeatable, the next time you come in, which may be more than 8 weeks after. If we didn’t have you disrobe, you would have to wear exactly the same clothes, again, the next time!
