Title: Pitfalls in the measurement of muscle mass: a need for a reference standard.
Issue Date: 2018
Citation: J Cachexia Sarcopenia Muscle.2018 04;(9)2:269-278
Abstract: All proposed definitions of sarcopenia include the measurement of muscle mass, but the techniques and threshold values used vary. Indeed, the literature does not establish consensus on the best technique for measuring lean body mass. Thus, the objective measurement of sarcopenia is hampered by limitations intrinsic to assessment tools. The aim of this study was to review the methods to assess muscle mass and to reach consensus on the development of a reference standard.
