Los médicos siempre han utilizado la radioabsorciometría de doble energía (DXA) para diagnosticar la osteoporosis, valorar el riesgo de fractura y controlar los cambios en la densidad mineral ósea. Se trata de un método asequible, accesible y poco radioactivo, que desempeña una función cada vez más importante en las siguientes tareas: detección de anomalías en la composición corporal, obesidad clínica, sarcopenia y lipodistrofia;1 determinación de los efectos de la dieta, el ejercicio y el entrenamiento físico en los pacientes que quieren adelgazar o controlar el peso, y control del crecimiento muscular y de la masa ósea y adiposa para mejorar o fomentar la salud y el rendimiento.2, 3, 4 En este seminario web se tratará sobre el uso de la DXA en los pacientes que buscan información analítica sobre su composición corporal para mejorar o fomentar la salud y el rendimiento físico.

L'absorptiométrie biphotonique à rayons X (ou DEXA) est traditionnellement utilisée par les médecins pour diagnostiquer l'ostéoporose, évaluer le risque de fracture et surveiller les modifications de la densité minérale osseuse. Cette modalité d'imagerie peu coûteuse, à faible rayonnement et facile d'accès joue maintenant un rôle croissant dans : la détection des anomalies de la composition corporelle, de l'obésité clinique, de la sarcopénie et de la lipodystrophie1 ; la détermination des effets du régime alimentaire, de l'exercice et de l'entraînement physique chez les patients qui s'efforcent de maigrir ou de contrôler leur poids ; et le suivi du développement musculaire, de la masse osseuse squelettique et de la masse adipeuse afin d'améliorer ou de renforcer la santé ou la performance physique2, 3, 4. Ce webinaire traitera du recours à l'examen DEXA chez les patients qui souhaitent obtenir des données analytiques sur leur propre composition corporelle afin d'améliorer ou de renforcer leur santé et leur performance physique.
