Advanced Testing


Standard testing is often used by many doctors to get a general idea of an issue. Cenegenics uses advanced testing to pinpoint what the issue is, how to treat it, and create a preventive plan around it. When it comes to your health, you don’t want general ballpark answers, you want specifics. In diagnosing any condition or underlying issues, accuracy is king. For this reason, we use only the most cutting edge and proven testing techniques.

Body Composition Analysis

A DEXA scan is the most accurate way to measure your body composition. It’s fast, convenient, and the results can serve as a tool for individuals whose aim is optimal body composition or those in a weight management program. Many alternative body composition testing options are inaccurate and misleading due to bad data and inconsistent readings.


The X-ray technique is able to identify the following:

  • Bone density
  • Fat mass (pounds)
  • Lean body mass (pounds)
  • Distribution of fat and muscle throughout the body
DEXA scan is known as the most accurate method of body composition testing, DEXA can help measure body fat as well as muscle mass and bone density

This test allows us to thoroughly assess your bone mineral density and overall bone health. A DEXA scan includes analysis of the total body, hips and lumbar vertebrae. These results are used and incorporated into your Elite Health Plan.

Cardiopulmonary Fitness Test

The VO2 Max test is the gold standard for assessing fitness through cardiopulmonary efficiency. The test measures how well the heart and lungs work together to supply the muscles with oxygen. Our certified exercise physiologists will use this information to prescribe an effective and tailored exercise program for you.

Resting Metabolic Rate Test

A resting metabolic rate (RMR) test identifies the amount of energy expended daily at rest. The results of the test estimate the total number of calories you would burn if at rest for 24 hours. If you’ve ever counted your calories or went on a diet that didn’t pan out, this test can reveal a lot of the why’s. This is valuable information towards creating a customized plan of action for a healthy weight and overall longevity. 

​CIMT Test

CIMT measures the thickness of the lining of the arteries in your neck, which correlates with what is happening with the arteries that supply your heart with blood. Genetics and environmental factors combine over time to cause inflammation of the inner layers of the artery and the formation of plaque in the arterial wall. This thickening can be measured using ultrasound technology to get a full picture of what is going on. It is recommended by both the American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology.
