Evaluation of a new set of calibration standards for the measurement of fat content via DPA and DXA.

A simulation study was performed to evaluate a new set of calibration standards for estimating the fat content of the body via dual-photon absorptiometry (DPA) and dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA). The standards, proposed by Nord and Payne [presented at the 2nd meeting of The Bath Conference on Bone Mineral Measurement (1990)] consist of stearic acid… (More)
