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… CONTINUE READING
