DEXA Body Composition assessment

Booking Process – DEXA whole body scans

As part of the new amended Victorian regulatory requirements, a medical referral is required for DEXA Body composition scans, however, we have simplified the process for booking DEXA body composition scan as follows:

Option 1: Online referral process (quick and simple)

We have engaged the services of Dr Janet Macintosh , BSc (Hons) PhD BMed FRANZCR, to generate a referral for a DEXA Body composition scan. Dr Janet Macintosh is a Specialist Medical Practitioner who holds a specialist registration with AHPRA in Radiology.

  1. Please read carefully prior to completing online Questionnaire form for submission to Dr Janet Macintosh. There will be a discounted cost of $40 (Non-Medicare funded) for medical referral provided by Dr Macintosh for DEXA body composition scan.

Option 2: External Referral process

  1. If you elect to use a Medical Practitioner or specified Allied Health Professional to provide a referral, download Body DEXA fit referral form here (other forms will not be accepted).
