    DXA scans and hydrostatic testing.

    While they have their own inaccuracies, I believe that these methods of measurement are the most accurate and consistent of all the methods currently available.

    There are 2 mobile companies that I use which only charge $45 for DXA scsns and $39 for hydrostatic tests.

    I think that hydro is more accurate than DXA, which is known for higher BF measurements but DXA scans provide more info, including bone density and weight, visceral adipose fat ratios and differential body part bf/lbm measurements which can be useful info.
