Measurement of body fat by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry and bioimpedance analysis in men with prostate cancer.

OBJECTIVE The aims of this study were to determine the percentage of body fat (%BF) by dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) and bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) using a standard adult equation and BIA using a standard geriatric equation in a population of older men with prostate cancer and to compare the results from these different methods… CONTINUE READING
