Abstract

Body composition assessment is essential in both clinical and field settings to accurately describe and monitor nutritional status for a variety of medical conditions and physiological processes. Patients with cancer, osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, as well as sick and malnourished patients, pregnant women, nursing mothers, and the elderly, are a few examples among several other diseases that can be assessed by body composition. Body composition outcomes help evaluate the effectiveness of nutritional interventions, the alterations associated with growth and disease conditions, and it contributes to the development of personalized physical training programs
