This module will highlight the parts of the DXA report that are most beneficial to you and your training programs. It will also help you understand the different components of the report and explain how these numbers can benefit you and your training program.
401 - The General Role of DXA in Baseball
This module discusses DXA's role in baseball. In this module Dr. Wilson talks about how DXA helps in monitoring key performance attributes in baseball.
501 - Profiling Positioning Demands Across Various Levels of Baseball Using DXA
In this module Dr. Wilson talks about the importance of different performance attributes and how it is various from youth to pro, how it can be different within the professional level, also how body composition can vary from rookies to veterans. Moreover, body composition varies across position.
601 - DXA as a Monitoring Tool for Baseball
This module goes over how DXA can be used as a monitoring tool in baseball. Dr. Wilson discusses the role of DXA's precision and accuracy and how it helps him set the athlete's baseline. He also talks about the importance of setting an accurate baseline to monitor changes and why DXA is the gold standard monitor body composition.
Sample Advanced Body Composition® Report
The Advanced Body Composition® Report not only shows the precise location of bone, lean mass, and fat mass, but also provides a visual comparison of changes in these three areas over time. Throughout the duration of a weight loss program, the patient can be scanned multiple times to track progress. When viewed together, these composition reports provide a very accurate “before and after” look at the entire body.Download Report

Initially I thought this journey was going to take a very long time – up to a year to achieve and now I realize that my journey is NOT as long as I initially thought. And I think I can achieve that in a much quicker time frame now as a result of the DXA scan.
The high-density image resolution was one of the reasons we chose the Hologic system. Its imaging capabilities are incredible.
Most body composition measures just tell you holistically your body composition in general. The biggest difference between the Hologic DXA and other forms of body composition, is the specificity that the Hologic DXA gives you.
