A noninvasive method for assessing BODY COMPOSITION. It is based on the differential absorption of X-RAYS (or GAMMA RAYS) by different tissues such as bone, fat and other soft tissues. The source of (X-ray or gamma-ray) photon beam is generated either from radioisotopes such as GADOLINIUM 153, IODINE 125, or Americanium 241 which emit GAMMA RAYS in the appropriate range; or from an X-ray tube which produces X-RAYS in the desired range. It is primarily used for quantitating BONE MINERAL CONTENT, especially for the diagnosis of OSTEOPOROSIS, and also in measuring BONE MINERALIZATION.
A condition of involuntary weight loss of greater then 10% of baseline body weight. It is characterized by atrophy of muscles and depletion of lean body mass. Wasting is a sign of MALNUTRITION as a result of inadequate dietary intake, malabsorption, or hypermetabolism.

  • Sonoelastography showed sarcopenia patients had more soft than non-sarcopenia patients, furthermore the elastography ratio of quadriceps over subcutaneous tissue was lower than non-sarcopenia patients. (bmj.com)
  • Early detection of sarcopenia with sonoelastography in patients with osteoporosis afford future trend of preventive medicine in geriatric patients. (bmj.com)
  • The objective of the present study was to investigate the incidence of and possible risk factors associated with sarcopenia among cancer patients. (spandidos-publications.com)
  • The data was subsequently compared between patients with and without sarcopenia. (spandidos-publications.com)
  • The incidence of sarcopenia among patients with cancer is high, particularly for males. (spandidos-publications.com)
  • During the treatment of patients with sarcopenia, precaution should continue to be taken to prevent associated complications, including infection, diarrhea and myelosuppression. (spandidos-publications.com)
  • Slightly more than half of patients had sarcopenia. (asbestos.com)
  • In nearly every type of solid tumor studied, researchers have demonstrated patients with sarcopenia fare worse during and after cancer treatments. (asbestos.com)
  • Impact of sarcopenia in patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer treated with PD-1 inhibitors: A preliminary retrospective study. (asbestos.com)
  • Average handgrip strength was greater in men without sarcopenia than in men with it (p=0.035). (nih.gov)
  • What's more, handgrip strength is considered an important test for diagnosing sarcopenia. (healthinaging.org)
  • Weak handgrip strength can predict low muscle mass and poor physical performance. (healthinaging.org)
  • Relationship of sarcopenia and body composition with osteoporosis. (nih.gov)
  • Second, we examined the associations of body composition (including muscle mass as a major and important component) and muscle strength on regional and whole-body BMDs. (nih.gov)
  • Multiple regression analyses were conducted to examine the association of fat mass, lean mass (including muscle mass), and grip strength with regional and whole-body BMDs. (nih.gov)
  • Median (interquartile range) age, body mass index, and body surface area were 68 (57-77) years, 28 (24-34) kg/m, and 1.9 (1.7-2.2) m, respectively. (elsevier.com)
  • Sarcopenia is also more common in a number of other health conditions that increase stress on the body. (healthline.com)
  • Cancer and cancer treatments also place great stress on the body, resulting in sarcopenia ( 16 ). (healthline.com)
  • The change in body composition may be difficult to detect due to obesity, changes in fat mass, or edema. (wikipedia.org)
  • A whole-body dual X-ray absorptiometry scan was performed on each patient to measure total and regional muscle mass. (hanyang.ac.kr)
  • However, the correlation was no longer observed in women after adjusting for body mass index. (hanyang.ac.kr)
  • It promotes fat-free body mass with decreasing sarcopenia. (issuu.com)
  • All participants had a similar body mass index ( BMI ) and age - which was 37 years, on average. (medicalnewstoday.com)
  • can be measured indirectly in a variety of ways including body mass index (see body mass index ) and percentage body fat. (wcrf.org)
  • Sarcopenia was defined according to gender- and body mass index (BMI)-specific cutoff points. (eur.nl)
  • Longitudinal changes in adult fat-free mass: influence of body weight. (ensure.com)
  • 2 A double-blind randomized study was used, employing 22 trained males (aged 20-49 and 25 kg/m 2 ≤ body mass index 2 ) who consumed 2.4 g/day of citrulline or placebo orally for 7 days. (life-enhancement.com)
