This paper begins with a fundamental description of the dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) technique for measurement of bone mineral. It describes how, in extending the technique to do accurate assessment of body fat and lean, it is important that material standards for fat and lean exist, and that a suitable model for fat distribution in the body be developed. The computational steps employed in DXA and in the familiar underwater weighing (UWW) technique are compared and contrasted… CONTINUE READING
