What is a BIA?

Your provider will also request a Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis or Bioimpedance Analysis (BIA). This is a painless quick procedure that calculates your body composition and fluid compartments using an imperceptible electrical current passed through pads (similar to an EKG electrode) placed on one hand and foot as you lie comfortable clothed on an exam table. You can learn more about the test and preparation by reading our handout on the BIA.

The BIA is now available to all patients who might like to have detailed information about their body composition and fluid compartments.  Please call the office to schedule an appointment.
