Validation of ‘ InBody ’ Bioelectrical Impedance by Whole Body MRI

  title={Validation of ‘ InBody ’ Bioelectrical Impedance by Whole Body MRI},
  author={Erin L. Thomas and Gary S. Frost and Tracey A M Harrington and Jimmy D Bell},
MRI has been shown to be an excellent technique for measuring body fat content, with it's ability to separately quantify specific fat compartments being a real advantage over other techniques. However, it is not suitable for large population studies. Bioelectrical impedance is widely used as a method for assessing body composition, however previous studies have found there is good correlation between fat measurements by MRI and impedance, but agreement was poor (Thomas et al. 1998). The advent… 
Assessment of Body Composition in Peritoneal Dialysis Patients Using Bioelectrical Impedance and Dual-Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry
MF-BIA may potentially be a useful tool for determining nutritional status in PD patients and serial estimations may help recognize short-term changes in body composition.
Measurement of Muscle Strength in Haemodialysis Patients by Pinch and Hand Grip Strength and Comparison to Lean Body Mass Measured by Multifrequency Bio-Electrical Impedance
Muscle strength measured by HGS and PS was associated with both markers of whole body and segmental body composition within the arm, particularly ECW/TBW.

MFBIA measurements made in peritoneal dialysis patients with peritoneAL dialysate instilled can overestimate body composition, including muscle mass, and as such potentially delay the recognition of PEW.
Effectiveness of Lumbopelvic Exercise in Colon Cancer Survivors: A Randomized Controlled Clinical Trial.
An 8-wk program based on stabilization exercises is a promising strategy to increase health-related fitness and to reduce waist circumference in colon cancer survivors in CCS.
It was found that most women find themselves with the fat percentage "very high" (45.03%) and most men are evaluated with values described as "above average" (37.57%).
Association between physical fitness, quality of life, and depression in stage II–III colorectal cancer survivors
There was a significant association between physical fitness and quality of life and depression in colorectal cancer survivors and participants in the lowest tertile of the 6-min walk test results had lower quality ofLife and greater depression than those in the highest tertile.
Comparison of Volume Status in Asymptomatic Haemodialysis and Peritoneal Dialysis Outpatients
Overhydration is common in healthy stable PD outpatients, and ECW volumes in PD patients are not dissimilar to those of pre-dialysis HD patients, which means the role of chronic volume overload as a risk factor for cardiovascular disease needs further investigation.
‘Physio-EndEA’ Study: A Randomized, Parallel-Group Controlled Trial to Evaluate the Effect of a Supervised and Adapted Therapeutic Exercise Program to Improve Quality of Life in Symptomatic Women Diagnosed with Endometriosis
Findings of this study will help to identify cost-effective non-pharmacological options (such as this exercise-based intervention) that may contribute to the improvement of HRQoL in symptomatic endometriosis women.
A Web-Based Exercise System (e-CuidateChemo) to Counter the Side Effects of Chemotherapy in Patients With Breast Cancer: Randomized Controlled Trial
This paper showed that a Web-based exercise program was effective in reversing the detriment in functional capacity and strength due to chemotherapy, and showed significantly improved secondary outcomes.
Does Diabetes Mellitus Predispose to Increased Fluid Overload in Peritoneal Dialysis Patients?
The ratio of ECW to TBW was greater in diabetic patients, and although this could be due to a loss of intracellular water, as albumin and C-reactive protein did not differ, it suggests that diabetic peritoneal dialysis patients have an expanded extracellular volume.


Development of a Rapid and Efficient Magnetic Resonance Imaging Technique for Analysis of Body Fat Distribution
Fast scan magnetic resonance imaging techniques for adipose tissue (AT) quantification were compared to a conventional T1‐weighted spin‐echo (SE) sequence, imaging a mid‐abdominal slice to provide minimal image distortion and allow rapid coverage of the whole body.
