How well do you think you know your body? Just like you can’t judge a book by its cover, you can’t determine what’s going on with your body just from the outside. DXA scans speak louder than a scale and are the most trusted method of determining a person’s body composition of muscle, bone, and fat. At DXA Body Composition NC, we utilize the most advanced technology in the body composition industry to provide customers with comprehensive analyses of their bodies from the inside out.


The price per scan affords you the ability to check back in on results as you make progress with your lifestyle changes.


The scans are safe for your body, only emitting the same amount of radiation you would receive taking a stroll on a sunny day.


DXA scans give you an accurate body composition report with information that ranges within 1-2% margin of error.


Along with your body composition scan, you will receive a personalized consultation with a DXA specialist to review your results.

This is the second time I have gone to see Adam for a DXA scan. Both times were a five-star experience from the booking, to the exam itself to Adam’s thorough and detailed explanation of the data. He is extremely knowledgeable, very professional and answered all of my questions. He pulled up my first scan and compared the two sets of data for me which was very helpful to see incremental changes.He is also knowledgeable about women’s health and how hormonal changes can affect results and encouraged me to discuss any concerns with my medical doctor. His office is clean, he is punctual and welcoming, he is well-organized and extremely professional. Highly recommend.

Hey, as a 49-year-old headed straight into that lovely change of life, I decided to go ahead and get my first Dexa scan just to get a basic idea about my bone mineral density and visceral fat. This place is amazing and the person who runs it is absolutely knowledgeable, professional, and efficient. The entire process took under 30 minutes and I learned an incredible amount of data about my current health status and body composition. I definitely have some goals after leaving this appointment. And, this has changed my previous approach toward my fitness; I have a better idea what I should focus on now rather than the areas I was focusing on previously. Don’t be nervous- it’s not only superfit running males who come here. And don’t worry, you will probably get some good news along with a little bit of bad (which you can handle, because you care about yourself). Plus, it’s very affordable. Good luck!

My 18 year old son and I went to get our DXA scan a few days ago. Overall very nice and useful experience.Impressed by the amount of usable information in the final report and even more impressed by the explanations given by Adam.

This was one of the coolest things I’ve ever done. The scan was five minutes and then afterwords we spent 20 minutes going over the results it was incredibly interesting and informative thank you!Edit: a year later and I’m still super happy with DXA. I’ve had three scans done to check my progress. I love data!

I’ve had a couple of body comp scans at this facility over the last year. The process was quick and Adam is a knowledgeable resource about the process and the results, as well as someone I felt comfortable around in a new, kinda awkward experience. I’m planning to go back again soon.

About Us

Since 2016, people across North Carolina have trusted DXA Body Composition NC to provide a comprehensive analysis of their bodies. We leverage medical-grade health testing and gold standard technologies to deliver immediate, science-backed insights about body composition.

Chronic disease is on the rise and obesity is an epidemic in this country.

We provide real-time data and actionable insights that empower you to achieve and sustain and improve optimal health.

The Story of Dr. Stewart and DXA Body Composition of NC

Dr. Robert Stewart, M.D. has served the Durham area and surrounding communities for more than 40 years. After 20 years as a general internist, including five years at Duke University, Dr. Stewart recognized the importance of disease prevention as opposed to just disease treatment. Additionally, he recognized the high mortality associated with obesity and osteoporosis, which may be prevented with early detection by DXA testing.

To address this, Dr. Stewart, along with his wife Ruth — an RN, established Bone Health, a mobile osteoporosis testing service that utilizes DXA technology. Over the next 20 years, the service grew and provided testing in 11 counties and 22 locations and became the largest osteoporosis service in North Carolina. It soon became apparent that many patients were going untreated and were suffering osteoporotic fractures, therefore osteoporosis treatment was added to their testing services. More recently nonpharmacologic (nonprescription medicines) approaches were also added.

Most recently, as an internist, Dr. Stewart recognizes the high prevalence of obesity and associated metabolic related problems such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, and heart disease and added the ability to test visceral fat by DXA technology. DXA technology is the recognized gold standard used by the U.S. Olympic committee. DXA Body Composition of NC gives patients science-based analysis and insights about their muscle, fat, and bone density composition.
