Our Facility

The BCAC offices encompass a suite-office for the research technical staff.

Tufts scientists have developed unique technology for reading body composition, enabling them to perform ground-breaking analysis of soft tissue and bone for a wide range of research needs. The expertise of Tufts researchers, who are recognized as national leaders in their field, make the Body Composition Analysis Center an unparalleled resource for analysis of CT and DXA scans for multi-center trials.

DXA and CT scans are analyzed by our industry certified scan technician, per our standardized protocol. All study data is securely stored in both electronic and hard copy formats. Our team provides a high degree of quality control for multi-center studies; ensuring that study data is properly acquired, stored, and reported.

In addition to our analysis center, we also maintain and operate a DXA lab where scans can be performed for contracted research studies. See the Tufts DXA Lab page for more information.
