A DEXA (DEXA or DXA) Dual-Energy X-ray Absorptiometry technology offers a quick and painless assessment, utilizing low-level X-rays to measure body composition, including body fat percentage, overall skeletal health, total lean mass, visceral fat, limb comparison for imbalances, and more. This advanced and widely respected technology provides precise details about your physique, making it the go-to choice for your comprehensive body composition assessment.
Bodycomp Imaging employs Hologic DEXA scanners to capture detailed pictures of the body while measuring tissue density per pixel. The human body is categorized into three density ranges of tissue. The most dense being bone mineral content, followed by lean mass, which includes non-fatty muscle and organ structures where calories are burned and power is generated. The third category is fat mass, consisting of essential fatty tissue and storage fat. This approach allows for the assessment of the muscle-to-fat-to-bone ratio and provides insights into how muscle, fat, and bone tissue change over time.
Our imaging capabilities extend to analyzing visceral fat in the abdomen and evaluating the structure of the spine and pelvis. Additionally, we can measure limb length in the extremities and identify muscle imbalances post-injury and during the recovery process.

The NeuroCatch® Platform, a Health-Canada approved cognitive-assessment tool, is an industry-leading medical device that offers an objective evaluation of cognitive function, which is delivered in minutes at the point of care.
NeuroCatch® conducts a rapid 6-minute scan to measure and report on brain function at the point of care. It produces a report immediately after the scan to display information on three different brain responses, also known as event-related potentials (ERPs). The ERPs are termed the ABCs of NeuroCatch®.
NeuroCatch® provides an objective and accurate measure of brain activity, augmenting and simplifying lengthy and subjective testing for brain health.
Designed as a "brain lab in a box," NeuroCatch® is a portable, easy-to-use system that is accessible to researchers and clinicians at the point of care to perform a cognitive evaluation.
NeuroCatch® performs a 6-minute non-invasive scan that compresses a 3-hour laboratory procedure into a rapid data acquisition. Its automated process creates repeatable evaluations, allowing clinicians to sensitively monitor subtle but significant changes over time.
