Dual Energy X ray Absorptiometry for Bone Mineral Density and Body Composition Assessment IAEA Human Health Series No. 15; 2011, 118 pp. International Atomic Energy Agency, Vienna, Austria.
This publication was developed as an integral part of the IAEA’s efforts to contribute to the transfer of technology and knowledge in the application of a widely used nuclear technique in nutrition, i.e. Dual-Energy X ray Absorptiometry (DXA). It provides information on the theoretical background as well as the practical application of DXA to measure bone mineral density and to assess body composition.
