Excess fat and fat-free mass have been extensively described in obese children, whereas few data about bone mineral content (BMC) variations are available in children. Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) allows a direct and accurate measurement of three body compartments (fat, lean, and BMC), subdivided into three regions (arms, trunk, and legs).

Abstract

Excess fat and fat-free mass have been extensively described in obese children, whereas few data about bone mineral content (BMC) variations are available in children. Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) allows a direct and accurate measurement of three body compartments (fat, lean, and BMC), subdivided into three regions (arms, trunk, and legs).
