strengths and weaknesses that warrant discussion. The use of clinical measurements of total body fat using dual energy x-ray absorptiometry and abdominal fat using magnetic resonance imaging, as well as clinical laboratory measurements of other risk factors, is a marked strength of the study. Another key

points of analysis (baseline and follow-up), whole-body measurements of body fat (in percentage), lean soft tissue mass (LST, in kilograms) and BMD (in grams per square centimeter) were assessed using a dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry scanner (Lunar DPX-NT; General Electric Healthcare, Little Chalfont

displacement plethysmography has shown high reliability and validity for evaluating body composition in many populations, and it has been used frequently as a criterion measure for field techniques in the past two decades, as other methods such as hydrodensitometry and dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry are not

purpose of this study was to develop a predict equation to calculate body fat percentage in youth soccer athletes from skinfold measurements, considering dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) values as a reference. Eighty-one males aged 15 to 26 years old (18±2 years; 73.0±8.2 kg; 1.80±1.7 m) from four
