Performance of dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry in evaluating bone, lean body mass, and fat in pediatric subjects.

Abstract

We studied the performance of the dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry method in evaluating bone mineral, fat, and lean soft tissue mass. This method was accurate in quantifying known small amounts of calcium, lard, and lean tissue mass. It was also accurate in evaluating small animal ashed bones, fat, and muscle mass. The analytic sensitivity of the method was… (More)
