Sports Performance

Target the optimal body composition for your sport and unlock your true potential within

It is important to periodise and plan your training and diet for competition to be physically at your peak and achieve your best athletic performance.

Athletes need to know their overall body composition and resting metabolic rate to set specific exercise and diet targets.

If you’re one of the unlucky ones, you will need to monitor your rehabilitation and changes to muscle in response to your rehab program.

A DEXA Melbourne scan will provide you this information and support these goals during training and competition.

From recreational to elite athletes, individual or team based sports, all active athletes will benefit from truly being able to track genuine effects of their training regime with the accurate and precise analysis available from cutting edge DEXA technology.

Attach Gold Standard Body Composition monitoring to your training efforts with the help of DEXA Melbourne.

It’s the only way you’ll really know, accurately, how you’re progressing.

Program Steps

Here is a step-by-step guide to initial scans and review scans

  1. Pre-Consultation Questionnaire

    Prior to coming along to your 1st appointment we will send you a pre-consultation questionnaire to complete. You will return this to us before the appointment preferably at least 24 hours before.

  2. Preparation for the scan

    When we send you then pre-consultation assessment form, there will be an additional document outlining what you need to do before the scan. It is important that you read this and follow the instructions to ensure you are best prepared for the most accurate scan results.

  3. The initial scan

    Our densitometrist will discuss the assessment of your pre-consultation questionnaire, ensure you have prepped correctly leading in to the scan, obtain any additional information required from you, explain the procedure for the scan, and ask you if you have any questions. You will then be positioned on the table for the scan. The scan itself will only take a few minutes, so relax and stay still!

  4. Discussion of scan results

    The report is printed off immediately following your scan. We will run through every component of the scan so will will understand total body fat, muscle and bone. Regional assessments comparing for example right arm vs left arm, right leg vs left leg. Look at the fat hiding underneath the muscle around the midsection. Discuss calculated resting metabolic rate. Provide professional, evidenced-based guidance to steer you in the right direction for additional support.

  5. Review Scans

    With the Sports Performance Scan Package, you will have tworeview scan. These are usually done around 6 weeks apart although this can be adjusted depending on the objectives.

  6. Ongoing maintenance

    Upon completion of the Sports Performance Scan Package many patients choose to continue having regular ongoing review scans. We offer discounted review scans for patients who have completed the initial phase of the Sports Performance Scan Package. If you would like ongoing support and accountability the frequency of review scans is best discussed directly with densitometrists.
