Advanced Body Composition
You see a number on the scale, but what does it really mean? Is your diet
or personal training plan working? Let us help you find out. Jupiter Medical
offers an advanced body composition scan that can tell you the distribution
of your fat mass, lean muscle tissue and bone mass.
It's As Easy As ABC
Scales are misleading as body weight is comprised of muscle, fat and bone
all added together. An Advanced Body Composition (ABC) Scan determines
your exact body composition value by measuring fat mass index which is
more accurate than body mass index. There is simply no better way to evaluate
metabolic and obesity related health risks.
An ABC scan provides very high-resolution images and is the only system
that incorporates a whole body composition reference database of thousands
of U.S. adults to allow comparison with other individuals of similar age,
gender, and race. A physician prescription is required for this test.

Defining Weight Loss
Weight loss doesn’t always mean fat loss. With a beneficial weight
loss and exercise plan, we want to keep calorie-burning muscle and lose
only the fat. Knowing your body fat percentage and body composition helps
you determine if your weight loss and muscle building goals are realistic.
This advanced technology uses our state of the art DXA Scanner. It is painless
and takes just minutes to complete. This scan is excellent for tracking
change. Images and numbers are stored and when the scan is repeated it
can show how your body has changed after a weight loss or exercise program.
The Best Part!
Advanced Body Composition Scans are quick, easy, cost effective, and accessible
to everyone. The report is yours to keep, or share with your doctor, personal
trainer, and/or your dietitian.
Information is power and once your see your body as it is, you will be
able to take specific steps to shape it into the body you want it to be!
