DUAL ENERGY X-RAY ABSORPTIOMETRY (DXA) eLearning Course

This module is about the measurement of bone density and body composition using the dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) technique. DXA differs from many body composition techniques commonly used in nutrition studies in that DXA can measure subregions of the body. The module is based on information in IAEA Human Health Series #15: Dual Energy X Ray Absorptiometry for Bone Mineral Density and Body Composition Assessment.
