Body Composition: Using our advanced body composition methods, we are able to assess whole-body and regional body composition (bone density, lean- and fat-mass) to the nearest gram. Additionally, we can assess levels of intracellular, extracellular and total body water. This allows great sensitivity to detect changes in body composition.
- Bone mineral density
- Full-body DXA scan
- Regional DXA scan
- Intracellular/Extracellular Fluid Balance
- Localized Muscle Hypertrophy/Atrophy
- Muscle Quality
Ultrasonography: With our state-of-the-art ultrasonography system, we are capable of capturing and constructing 4D, multi-planar views of the human anatomy. This system allows for precising imaging of connective tissue and quantification of key variables of skeletal muscle such as muscle thickness, cross sectional area, pennation angle and fascicle length. Additionally, using pulse wave doppler, real-time measures of flow mediated dilation can be assessed.
- Flow-mediated dilation
- Blood flow
- Muscle Cross Sectional Area
- Muscle Pennation Angle & Fascicle Length
- Muscle Thickness
