Table 3 Illustration of the advantages and disadvantages of different techniques for measuring body composition in clinical practice. The patient is a . The following is an exclusive excerpt from the book NSCA’s Guide to Sport and Exercise Nutrition, published by Human text and images provided by Human Kinetics. Field methods for assessing body composition are those that are portable and easy to use for assessment of several people in a short time : NSCA’S Guide to Sport And Exercise Nutrition. Techniques for measuring body composition: proceedings of a conference, Quartermaster Research and Engineering Center, Natick, Massachusetts, January , Sponsored by Headquarters, Quartermaster Research and Engineering Command, U.S. Army Quartermaster Corps and Committee on Stress Physiology, Advisory Board on Quartermaster Research and 2/5(1).   The unique value of this book is that it brings together the findings and opinions of the leaders in the various disciplines whose interests converge in the subject of body composition. A section on interrelations and comparisons is valuable in showing how the various approaches differ and how they may be put to practical use in measuring Author: M. I. Grossman.

This review is targeted at techniques for assessing body composition, and includes a disproportionate discussion of those techniques most feasible and practical for use with children. Considerations of the methodological assumptions and of the analysis and presentation of body composition results for children also are reviewed. Basic concepts.

Measuring Health from the Inside is a major step forward in treating patients with eating disorders. This important book explains how two simple measurement techniques-Metabolic Testing and Body Composition Analysis-can help patients make rapid progress in understanding their condition and tracking their progress toward recovery.5/5(11).   Like hydrostatic weighing, DEXA scans are incredibly accurate at measuring body composition. Whereas hydrostatic weighing involves dunking under the water, a DEXA scan simply involves lying on a table for a few quick, dry and painless minutes. Like the hydrostatic weighing method, don’t count on around-the-clock availability of DEXA’s. It then discusses modern approaches for measuring energy expenditure and body composition, classical and modern methods of anthropometry, measurement of bone mineral content in vivo, and imaging techniques in analysis of bone status. Nutritional scientists will find this book a useful source of information related to the field. Remember that body mass index or BMI is not a body composition tool. BMI is a ratio of ones weight to height. Body mass index is not as precise for assessing ideal body weight as body composition testing is because it does not consider the ratio of fat to lean weight.
