Fan beam dual energy X-ray absorptiometry body composition measurements in piglets.


OBJECTIVES A piglet model was used to validate and cross validate the fan-beam (FB) dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) software vKH6 and to determine the predictive values of physiologic parameters (weight, length, age and gender) on body composition. METHODS Nineteen piglets (Group A: 600 to 21100 g) were used to validate the FB-DXA measurements of… (More)
