Seca Scan Q & A
What is the Seca scan?
The Seca mBCA scan is a noninvasive procedure that tests your body composition with the use of bioelectrical impedance, which is a low-level electric current. The tool can discern the difference between various components in your body, including blood, muscle, and fat.
The body composition scan is safe, effective, and painless.
What does the Seca scan measure?
The Seca mBCA scan measures many body composition parameters, including:
- Fat mass versus fat-free mass
- Total body fat
- Visceral fat, abdominal fat linked to heart disease and diabetes
- Total body water and extracellular water, water outside your cells
- Skeletal muscle mass
The Seca mBCA scan also features a tool called a phase angle that measures your nutritional and functional status, which helps Dr. Comstock evaluate your health so he can create a treatment plan that best suits your individual needs.
What can I expect during a Seca scan?
The Seca mBCA scan is noninvasive and painless and takes only 17 seconds. During the quick procedure, Dr. Comstock has you stand on the scan machine, which looks like a scale and hold the sensors to measure your body composition. You won’t feel a thing as the low-level electric current gathers the necessary information.
How does knowing my body composition help me?
A body composition scan is the best way for you to get the “whole picture” of what’s going on in your body. Most importantly, it contrasts your fat mass and your muscle mass, which has long been considered one of the best determinants of health status. The scan also allows Dr. Comstock to evaluate your body’s calorie-burning power to help him create the most accurate weight loss plan.
As you go through Dr. Comstock’s program, he uses the Seca mBCA scan to monitor your progress with your diet, hormone or exercise program.
