Correlation of clinically applied indices and circumferences for body composition assessment

Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis


Body Composition (BC) can be defined as a branch of human biology that studies various corporal components and their quantitative steady-state relations or rules.
Body Composition research relates to three interconnecting areas:
Models and their anatomical and/or chemical relations: study of the components proportions and their steady-state associations.
Methodology: study of methods to quantify the components.
Biology: study of the influences of biological factors at various domains with corporal effect components.
