Ultrasound techniques are emerging as a cost-effective alternative to body composition analysis. However, ultrasound wanding at seven sites used for the Jackson and Pollock has not been investigated in comparison to bio-electrical impedance (BIA) body composition analysis (BCA) techniques. A convenience sample (N= 48; Male n= 19, Female n= 29) volunteered and completed the study. Body fat percentage was assessed using the multi-frequency InBody 520 octopolar BIA (MF-BIA) and the BodyMetrix® BX2000 Ultrasound …
