Analysis of total tissue composition and, particularly, body fat measurements has become progressively important in the diagnosis and follow-up of patients with different clinical conditions. Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) fan-beam scanners are widely used to measure body composition, but the development of translational equations to be able to compare data of different scanning systems is necessary. The aim of this study was to assess the extent of agreement for regional measurements… CONTINUE READING
