Validation of Methods to Estimate Body Fat
Validation of Methods to Estimate Body Fat

The purpose of this study is to evaluate various methods for estimating body composition in human subjects. Each subject is evaluated by several methods that are then compared to a criterion value. We hypothesize that the prediction method will yield the same result as the criterion value. The risks to subjects are minimal and all techniques are routinely performed.
