Czeck publishes article in Clinical Nutrition ESPEN

Madeline Czeck, MS

Madeline Czeck, MS, a doctoral student in the School of Kinesiology, is the lead author of an article entitled “Dual X-ray absorptiometry-derived total and regional body volume” recently published in Clinical Nutrition ESPEN. This study evaluated the validity of total and regional dual X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) derived body volume measurements to a traditional method of water displacement for measuring body volume. The results of this study demonstrated that DXA may be used as valid method for estimating total as well as regional measures of volume, and thus expand the DXA’s capabilities. Don Dengel, PhD, a professor and director of the Laboratory of Integrative Human Physiology (LIHP), Erica Roelofs, MS, current doctoral student, and William Juckett, MS, also a current doctoral student and all in the School of Kinesiology, were co-authors on this article.
