Aims: To evaluate the accuracy of body fat percentage (BF%) estimates from a portable, non-traumatizing ultrasound device with high accuracy and reliability compared to dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA), the reference technique. Design: Cross-validation between ultrasound technique (UT), DEXA, air displacement plethysmography (ADP) and bioelectrical impedance (BIA) was developed in the study. Subjects: A total of 89 healthy subjects (41 women, 48 men), aged 48.4 ± 17.7 (mean ± SD), with… Expand
Validation of Three Body Composition Techniques with a Comparison of Ultrasound Abdominal Fat Depths against an Octopolar Bioelectrical Impedance Device
TLDR
Cross-validate three clinical-grade measures of body composition, using an octopolar Bioelectrical Impedance (BIA), an ultrasound analyzer (US) and Air-Displacement Plethysmography (ADP) to compare the US scans of total abdominal, subcutaneous and visceral fat depths against the trunk percent fat (%BF) from theOctopolar BIA. Expand
Ultrasound techniques applied to body fat measurement in male and female athletes.
TLDR
A new model to produce body fat estimates with ultrasound and anthropometric dimensions was developed and produced accurate body fat and body fat percentage estimates in relation to the fan-beam DEXA technique. Expand
Ultrasound Measurement of Total Body Fat in Obese Adolescents
TLDR
An innovative portable ultrasound technique has advantages in terms of reliability, reproducibility, accuracy and costs for screening and monitoring obese adolescents and should prove valuable for epidemiological studies. Expand
Prediction of body fat in male athletes from ultrasound and anthropometric measurements versus DXA.
TLDR
A multi -linear model of body fat estimation from ultrasound and anthropometric dimensions (height, weight, waist circumference) using the DXA reference method is developed and suggested that it is practical to apply to different sports. Expand
Reproducibility and Validity of A-Mode Ultrasound for Body Composition Measurement and Classification in Overweight and Obese Men and Women
TLDR
While the US was not valid in this population, it was reliable producing results with minimal error, suggesting this technique may be effective for tracking changes in a weight loss or clinical setting. Expand
Comparison of Body Composition Assessment Using Air-Displacement Plethysmography and A-Mode Ultrasound before and after a 12-Week Exercise Intervention in Normal Weight Adult Males
TLDR
The cross-sectional and change relationships and agreements between AUS and ADP from a 12-week resistance exercise intervention designed to increase fat-free mass (FFM) and % body fat (%BF) were assessed. Expand
A Validation of a Handheld Ultrasound Device to Assess Body Composition in College-Aged Adults
TLDR
This study demonstrated significant differences between the DEXA, US and ADP when estimating %BF, and FM in college-aged students, and may be due to the measurement methodology, between machines. Expand
Reliability of body composition assessment using A-mode ultrasound in a heterogeneous sample
TLDR
A-mode US is highly reliable for %BF assessments, but it is more precise for men than for women, and Examiner performance is a source of variability that needs to be mitigated to further improve the precision of this technique. Expand
Evaluation of body composition using three different methods compared to dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry
TLDR
Comparison of the simple methods of skinfolds, ultrasound, and bioelectrical impedance analysis against the standard of dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) in the assessment of body fat in normoactive Turkish male and female university students revealed that the three techniques could not be used interchangeably. Expand
Body Fat Mass Assessment: A Comparison between an Ultrasound-Based Device and a Discovery A Model of DXA
TLDR
The use of a portable device based on a US produced a very accurate BF estimate in relation to DXA reference technique, as DXA absorptiometry techniques are not interchangeable, and the use of the ultrasound-based device needs to be recalibrated on a more contemporary DXA. Expand

Comparison of Body Composition Analysis Methods in Clinical Routine
TLDR
The SFT or BIA method would be preferred to monitor BCA in non-obese subjects in clinical routine and should be considered as the method of choice in obese patient monitoring, since reproducibility gains special importance, other than the accuracy in the context. Expand
Body-composition assessment via air-displacement plethysmography in adults and children: a review.
TLDR
This review reviewed the principal findings from studies published between December 1995 and August 2001 that compared the BOD POD method with reference methods and summarized factors contributing to the different study findings. Expand
Body composition in children and adults by air displacement plethysmography
TLDR
With additional refinements, the air displacement plethysmography system has the potential of providing an accurate and practical method of quantifying body fat in children as it now does in adults. Expand
Total body fat estimations by near-infrared interactance, A-mode ultrasound, and underwater weighing.
TLDR
The Wherry-Doolittle test selection method was utilized to predict percent of total body fat (%fat) from either ultrasound or NIR data with anthropometric measurements, optimizing for the fewest number of data points which correlated highly with UWW results. Expand
Evaluation of a new air displacement plethysmograph for measuring human body composition.
TLDR
The BOD POD is a highly reliable and valid method for determining %FAT in adult humans in comparison to HW and may be able to accommodate special populations such as the obese, elderly, and disabled. Expand
Validity and reproducibility of ultrasonography for the measurement of intra-abdominal adipose tissue
TLDR
The results of this validation study show that abdominal ultrasound, using a strict protocol, is a reliable and reproducible method to assess the amount of intra-abdominal adipose tissue and to diagnose intra-ABdominal obesity. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that using a well standardized technique and properly trained operators, ultrasonic measurement of intra-abdominal depth is a valid method in assessing the amount of visceral adipose tissue. Expand
Comparison of air displacement plethysmography with dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry and 3 field methods for estimating body composition in middle-aged men.
TLDR
Although %BF was systematically underestimated, body composition was closely estimated with air displacement plethysmography in middle-aged men, with a lower SEE and higher adjusted R2 value. Expand
Ultrasound as an approach to assessing body composition.
TLDR
It is suggested that in free-living, nonobese, white men, body fat can be estimated with nearly the same degree of accuracy using either the caliper or ultrasonic technique. Expand
Assessment of fat-free mass using bioelectrical impedance measurements of the human body.
TLDR
Data indicate that the bioelectrical impedance technique is a reliable and valid approach for the estimation of human body composition and further validation of this method is recommended in subjects with abnormal body composition. Expand
