Fat-free and fat mass percentiles in 5225 healthy subjects aged 15 to 98 years.
OBJECTIVES Fat-free mass (FFM) and fat mass (FM) are important in the evaluation of nutritional status. Bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) is a simple, reproducible method used to determine FFM… Expand
Single prediction equation for bioelectrical impedance analysis in adults aged 20--94 years.
Existing equations for bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) are of limited use when subjects age or become overweight because these equations were developed in young, normal-weight subjects and are… Expand
D-dimer testing for suspected pulmonary embolism in outpatients.

The plasma level of D-dimer, a fibrin degradation product (FDP), is nearly always increased in the presence of acute pulmonary embolism (PE). Hence, a normal D-dimer level (below a cutoff value of… Expand
Diagnosis of pulmonary embolism by a decision analysis-based strategy including clinical probability, D-dimer levels, and ultrasonography: a management study.
BACKGROUND Assessment of the clinical probability of pulmonary emboli sm, plasma D-dimer measurement, and lower-limb venous compression ultrasonography have all been advocated in the workup of… Expand

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate body composition parameters, including fat‐free mass (FFM), appendicular skeletal muscle mass (ASMM), relative skeletal muscle mass (RSM) index, body cell mass (BCM), BCM… Expand
Performance of Helical Computed Tomography in Unselected Outpatients with Suspected Pulmonary Embolism
Pulmonary embolism is a common and potentially fatal disorder (1). However, the prevalence of pulmonary embolism in suspected cases is only approximately 25% to 35% (2, 3). This figure seems to be… Expand
Standardized uptake value of 2-[(18)F] fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose in predicting outcome in head and neck carcinomas treated by radiotherapy with or without chemotherapy.

PURPOSE In patients with head and neck cancer enrolled onto a prospective study of positron emission tomography (PET), pretreatment 2-[(18)F] fluoro-2- deoxy-D-glucose (FDG) uptake was evaluated as a… Expand
Reference values of fat-free and fat masses by bioelectrical impedance analysis in 3393 healthy subjects.
Determination of fat-free mass (FFM) and fat mass (FM) is of considerable interest in the evaluation of nutritional status. In recent years, bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) has emerged as a… Expand
Contribution of body composition to nutritional assessment at hospital admission in 995 patients: a controlled population study.

- 1 December 2001
Body weight, weight changes and BMI are easily obtainable indicators of nutritional status, but they do not provide information on the amount of fat-free and fat masses. The purpose of the present… Expand
Body mass index compared to dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry: evidence for a spectrum bias.
The objective of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of body mass index (BMI) in the diagnosis of obesity. The relationship of this weight-for-height index to body composition was determined… Expand
