Abstract Background The 4-component (4C) model is a criterion method for human body composition that separates the body into fat, water, mineral, and protein, but requires 4 measurements with significant cost and time requirements that preclude wide clinical use. A simplified model integrating only 2 measurements—dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) and bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA)—and 10 min of patient time has been proposed. Objective We aimed to validate a rapid, simplified 4C DXA+ BIA body composition model in …
