Total-body skeletal muscle mass: estimation by a new dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry method.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Skeletal muscle (SM) is an important body-composition component that remains difficult and impractical to quantify by most investigators outside of specialized research centers. A large proportion of total-body SM is found in the extremities, and a large proportion of extremity lean soft tissue is SM. A strong link should thus exist between… (More)
