Conclusion

The measurement of body composition allows for the estimation of body tissues, organs, and their distributions in living persons without inflicting harm. It is important to recognize that there is no single measurement method in existence that allows for the measurement of all tissues and organs and no method is error free. Furthermore, bias can be introduced if a measurement method makes assumptions related to body composition proportions and characteristics that are inaccurate across different populations. The clinical significance of the body compartment to be measured should first be determined before a measurement method is selected since the more advanced techniques are less accessible and more costly.
