Bone Density, Muscle Quality and Body Composition Assessments at Clayton – DXA and pQCT

Bone and Muscle Research Group
The Bone and Muscle Research Group Clinical Imaging Service is now up and running!

We aim to provide cost-effective service for researchers exploring bone and muscle health.

Our specialised dual xray absorptiometry (DXA) and peripheral quantitative computed tomography (pQCT) machines assess and quantify bone density, body composition, bone geometry, visceral and subcutaneous adipose tissue, and more. This may be particularly useful in studies with paediatric, obese or elderly patients or those with endocrine, rheumatic or metabolic conditions.

For more information, to access the Clinical Imaging Service or to collaborate with the Bone and Muscle Research Group, contact Dr David Scott:
