Autopsy, but it's rather invasive and the repeatability is problematic.
Short of that, there are a lot of methods, all of which have inherent error. DEXA, hydrostatic weighing, BodPod, skinfold, bioelectric impedance analysis, anthropometric measurement, visual estimation.
Good 7-part series about the topic, starting here: https://weightology.net/the-pitfalls-of-body-fat-measurement-part-1/

I have a little hand held machine. It's not going to be exact but over time I do think it tells you if you are improving or getting worse. About $30 on Amazon. I have used it for a few years and seen it go from 29% to 19% so I know it does register changes. I like it because I am in control of the variables from measurement to measurement.

The US Navy method is the easiest I know of. Takes maybe two minutes and you just need a scale and a measuring tape. Like every other technique, use it to track change over time.
