Evaluates newer and established techniques of body composition assessment.Body composition assessment is used in a range of fields including nutrition sports science and medical physics. In this volume newer techniques are evaluated alongside those more established. Little background knowledge is assumed making the book accessible to students researchers and professionals.Body composition assessment is used in a range of fields including nutrition sports science and medical physics. In this volume newer techniques are evaluated alongside those more established. Little background knowledge is assumed making the book accessible to students researchers and professionals.Body composition studies are used in a wide variety of fields including human biology medicine sports science epidemiology and nutrition. They may be used to predict later body composition from childhood measures bone density loss in athletes under heavy training regimes or in the elderly to assess obesity in children and adults and to investigate the likely effects of malnutrition. Recently there has been a resurgence of interest in the field of body composition together with rapid development of a whole new range of assessment techniques. In this volume newer and older techniques are evaluated and developments and aims are discussed. The chapters assume little background knowledge and will therefore be invaluable to nutritionists biologists clinicians and medical physicists alike.List of contributors: 1.
