  • SummaryDEXA TECHNOLOGY passes X-rays of 2 different energies through the tissues of the body. These energies are blocked or attenuated, relative to the density of the tissues they are penetrating. The characteristic densities of bone, fat, and lean tissue are then used to calculate the relative masses of each in any given region.
