A DEXA machine stands for Dual-Energy X-ray Absorptiometry and can test body composition, as well as bone density. A body composition test identifies total mass, lean mass, and fat mass. It also will give information regarding overall weight and where it is distributed throughout the body. A bone density test identifies quality and condition of the bones and possibility or progression of osteoporosis.
