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.

I had emailed with Adam before going in and he was very responsive and helpful. The appointment was thorough and Adam was extremely knowledgeable and was able to break down the results to me so that I understood everything clearly. He was friendly and professional and I will definitely be back for a follow up in the future. I recommend them to anyone looking to get a scan done!

Have been looking for a place to get this scan done to compare against other body Comp methods (caliper, tape etc) and to use as a metric to track my training and nutrition progress.Adam was fantastic, great at returning calls, sending the information ahead of time and was quick, courteous and exceptionally pleasant through the scan. He took the time to go over all the results so we understood each value and define each aspect of the report.Will definitely recommend to all my friends and gym goers as well as be a returning client myself! Thank you so much!

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.
