DEXA - Chow Zi Jie (11)

In my opinion, DEXA should be the best option for measuring body fat.
  • Since it is 99.9% accurate, it is able to tell a person accurately if he/she has an unhealthy amount of body fats.
  • Also, it is non-invasive and exposure to x-ray radiation are close to that of a normal x-ray. It has therefore no side effects.
  • Since procedures are almost the same as taking an x-ray, it takes much lesser time than other methods and results can be processed very quickly

  • However, going for DEXA test can be a financial strain, as it costs a lot of money per test.
