Current methods to evaluate the severity and progression of the disease, effectiveness of therapy and survival among cancer patients are generally limited in their prognostic ability. Whole-body phase angle, measured by using a tetrapolar, phase-sensitive bioelectrical impedance analyzer, offers a new approach. Phase angle (arc tangent of the ratio of… CONTINUE READING
