Evaluation of DXA against the four-component model of body composition in obese children and adolescents aged 5 to 21 years

Abstract

Background:Body composition is increasingly measured in pediatric obese patients. Although dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) is widely available, and is precise, its accuracy for body composition assessment in obese children remains untested.Objective:We aimed to evaluate DXA against the four-component (4C) model in obese children and adolescents in… (More)
