The American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and body composition experts Timothy Lohman and Laurie Milliken have teamed up to bring you a complete practical guide to performing body composition assessments. ACSM's Body Composition Assessment provides you with foundational information and scientific research that can be applied in the fields of medicine, exercise science, nutrition, growth and development and geriatrics. This comprehensive guide delves into the methodology of a number of techniques. These include DXA, BIA, ultrasound, underwater weighing, ADP, total body water and BMI. The text uncovers the sources of error that are common in each measurement technique. Researchers and clinicians will benefit from the book's detailed descriptions of methods for use in both laboratory and field settings. As well as protocols for the standardization of each method and their advantages and limitations. The text thoroughly examines the health implications of body composition by looking at the relationships between chronic disease and total body fat, fat distribution, muscle mass and bone density. It also gives you the ability to assess changes in a person's body composition over time.
