Abstract

Bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) may be used to assess fat free mass (FFM) with reasonable validity based on mean-level comparisons, but differences between BIA and DXA may vary by about 4 kg in an individual patient. These results require confirmation in a larger sample of HNC (Head and neck cancer) patients.
