Regional and whole-body dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry to guide treatment and monitor disease progression in neuromuscular disease.


Dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) is a safe, noninvasive, inexpensive tool for managing patients with neuromuscular diseases. Regional and whole-body DEXA can be used to guide clinical treatments, such as determining body composition to guide nutritional recommendations, as well as to monitor disease progression by assessing regional and whole-body… (More)
