Be aware that you will be exposed to a very small amount of radiation. The DEXA scanner uses beams of very low-energy radiation and a full body composition DEXA scan will expose you to about 0.4 uSv (microsieverts). By comparison, this is significantly less radiation exposure than a hip x-ray (800 uSv) or a flight from New York to Los Angeles (about 40 uSv).
