Summary The detection of changes in lean mass (LM) distribution can help to prevent disability. This study assessed the degree of association between anthropometric measurements and dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) body composition (BC) parameters of the upper and lower limbs in a healthy general population and collected DXA age- and sex-specific values of BC that can be useful to build a reference standard.

Objective:The main aim of this work was to report on trabecular bone score (TBS) by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) of healthy Italian subjects to be used as a reference standard for future study in clinical and research settings. The secondary aim was to investigate the link between TBS and conventional parameters of bone and body composition by DXA.Methods:250 individuals of 5 age bands (spanning from 18 to 70 years of age, equally distributed for both age and sex) were prospectively re...

Abstract Aims To provide a reference standard database of ultrasonographic parameters of abdominal adiposity in healthy people. Methods Italian non-obese volunteers among blood donors were enrolled in 5 age bands (from 18 to 70 year-old) to reach the threshold of 25 males and 25 females per single band (total: 250). All subjects were measured for weight, height and waist circumference and underwent ultrasonography (US) by an expert radiologist for the assessment of several abdominal fat thicknes...

Objective:To investigate the predictive value for hepatic steatosis of a new software for the quantification of visceral fat by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) and to design new regions of interest (ROIs).Methods:Adult volunteers were prospectively screened for hepatic steatosis by ultrasonography to obtain a well-balanced population according to the presence/absence of the disease. 90 adult patients without steatosis and 90 with steatosis (mild, 53.3%; moderate, 37.7%; and severe, 10.0%)...

Abstract Objective The aim of this study was to test the relationship between anthropometry, ultrasonography, and dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) for the assessment of body composition in clinical practice. Methods The study was carried out in Italian blood donor volunteers belonging to five different age groups (18–70 y old; 25 men and 25 women per group; N=250 participants; n=125 men, n=125 women). A complete history was collected and routine blood analyses were performed to confirm hea...

Abstract The aim of the present study was to evaluate the performance of sagittal MR localizer (MR-loc), in terms of diagnostic accuracy and intra- and inter-observer agreement in the detection of vertebral fractures (VFs). Three-hundred MR examinations of the thoracic and/or lumbar spine were randomly collected. A semi-quantitative approach was used and morphometric analysis was performed when a VF was suspected. MR-loc images were evaluated blindly by three radiologists in two different sessio...

Dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) is a well-established method for the diagnosis of osteoporosis and monitoring of treatment. Recent advances in DXA technologies have improved accuracy and precision. Nevertheless, errors in bone mineral density measurement and interpretation could occur and negatively affect the diagnosis and management of patients. These errors can result from improper equipment installation and maintenance, inadequate education and training in bone densitometry, and insuf...

Two patients with grade III obesity (body mass index [BMI] ≥ 40), a 31-year-old man (A) and a 26-year-old woman (B), banded gastroplasty. Both patients followed the same nutritional and postsurgical approach. After 12 months, both patients achieved a similar reduction in BMI (patient A: −29.7%;
