The reproducibility, accuracy, and precision of dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) was assessed by scanning 13 piglets (1471-5507 g) in triplicate. In four piglets, fat content was increased with porcine lard around the abdomen; additional measurements were performed on these animals. Reproducibility in DXA measurements from the animals without added fat was 0.09% for body weight, 1.95% for bone mineral content (BMC), and 5.35% for fat content. DXA estimates of body weight, BMC, and fat… CONTINUE READING
