Clinical characteristics influencing bioelectrical impedance
In research, techniques include underwater weighing (densitometry), multi-frequency bioelectrical impedance
analysis (BIA) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
Body composition estimated from NHANES III bioelectrical impedance
A comparison of leg-to-leg bioelectrical impedance
and skinfolds in assessing body fat in collegiate wrestlers.
Pearson product moment correlation coefficients were calculated to investigate the relationship of the percent body fat scores obtained to skinfold thickness, body circumference measurements and bioelectrical impedance

The day before the start of the race and after every stage, within one hour after arrival at the finish line, every participant underwent anthropometric measurements, bioelectrical impedance
analysis (BIA), and the collection of urinary samples in order to determine body mass (BM), skeletal muscle mass (SM), percent body fat (% BF), lean body mass (LBM), and percent total body water (% TBW).

Segmental bioelectrical impedance
analysis: Theory and application of a new technique.
You can measure your body fat using a bioelectrical impedance
scale (available at Wal-Mart or Target), skin fold measurements with a caliper or a trip to a healthcare center that offers the Bod Pod, an egg-shaped chamber that uses air-displacement technology.
Evidence statement Level of evidence Subjective Global Assessment (SGA) is a valid method IV (7) of assessing nutritional status in patients with cancer cachexia The scored Patient-Generated Subjective Global III-3 (7,8) Assessment (PG-SGA) is a valid method of assessing nutritional status in patients with cancer cachexia Bioelectrical impedance
analysis is not suitable for III-3 (9,10) body composition measurement in individual patients with cancer cachexia
