In this article, the most commonly used body composition methods for the assessment of whole-body and segmental-body compartments, including fat mass (FM), fat-free mass (FFM), total body water (TBW), extracellular water (ECW), intracellular water, bone mineral content, protein mass, and body cell mass (BCM), were described. A basic description of each method including theoretical principles, applications, and limitations were provided, and a logistic framework for the application of body… CONTINUE READING
