TBM is a short scan performed on a DEXA scanner which accurately measures the ratio of fat to muscle in your body. It is a highly accurate measure of Body Mass Index (BMI).
What will your TBM scan tell you?
- Body Mass Index (BMI) and Total Body Fat percentage
- Where your BMI sits within the normal ranges defined by the World Health Organisation
- Fat Distribution throughout the body including legs, trunk, android (stomach) and gynoid (waist/hips)
Do you need a referral, and how much will a TBM scan cost?
A medical referral is not required for a TBM scan. A TBM scan costs $70 and is non-rebateable by Medicare
