using dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry on Days 3 and 10 (Lunar iDEXA; GE Medical Systems, Madison, WI). To minimize and standardize the acute effects of postural fluid shift, subjects were asked to lie supine for at least 15 min prior to each scan. Muscle for immunohistochemical analysis was mounted on

therapy should be prioritized. Although previously, reduced BMD was detected only when it led to the first bone fracture (ie, osteoporosis), today a person’s BMD can be measured accurately and reliably using bone densitometry (dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry). 11 – 13 Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry

postexercise CWI between individuals with low and high body fat and to establish the relationship between the thermal, physiological, and performance changes. Methods Subjects Forty-eight potential participants volunteered to undergo initial dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) screening (see Table  1

Participants underwent preintervention BFlh architectural and body composition (by whole-body dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry) assessments as well as VO 2 peak, leg press, knee extension, and bench press 1-repetition maximum (1RM) testing. Participants met with a dietitian fortnightly for consultation

by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) and MVPA was a secondary purpose of this study to explore replication of previous findings ( 21 ) in our current sample. The current investigation used DXA over the traditionally used BMI as per previous research. DXA, unlike BMI, can account for different

height (kg·m −2 ). Fat mass and fat-free mass were determined by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (Hologic QDR WI, Tampa, FL). The intra-assay coefficient of variation of dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry was 1.9% for both fat mass and lean mass. Waist circumference was measured using a tape measure with

, dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA), surface anthropometry, RMR, and physiological symptom questionnaires was carried out in November and early December 2016, a time when athletes resumed training after a break following the Olympic competition cycle. Participants were reassessed during late April

most frequently used noninvasive pediatric techniques include dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA), quantitative ultrasound (QUS), peripheral quantitative computed tomography (pQCT), and high-resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography (HR-pQCT). DXA, pQCT, and HR-pQCT assess bone via X
