Background and objectives Measuring body composition is relevant in geriatric medical patients at high risk of sarcopenia (loss of muscle mass/strength) for diagnosis and monitoring efficacy of treatment interventions. Dual‐energy X‐ray absorptiometry (DXA) and bio‐impedance analysis (BIA) are widely used in research/clinical practices, but their agreement is unknown in this population. Therefore, it was investigated how a dual‐frequency (DF)‐BIA compares to DXA regarding replicability, direct comparisons and …
