• percentage
  • Comparing BAI with "gold standard" dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) results, the correlation between DXA-derived percentage of adiposity and the BAI in a target population was R = 0.85, with a concordance of C_b = 0.95. (wikipedia.org)
  • risk
  • In sum, the association between peripheral adiposity and favorable vascular risk factor profiles observed by Tankó et al 1 may not be due to direct atheroprotective effects of peripheral fat per se. (ahajournals.org)
  • studies
  • Since there are known racial differences in growth rates, body proportions, and adiposity, it cannot be assumed that studies done on whites are applicable to Blacks. (bioportfolio.com)
