Abstract S87 Table Correlations for ultrasound measurements to DEXA and quadriceps strength
Qlean (DEXA)Tlean (DEXA)Quadriceps isometric strength
Qcsa (n  =  18)0.79***0.77***0.50*
Qt (n  =  18)0.63**0.64**0.20 NS
  • ***p<0.001; **p<0.01; *p<0.05; NS, not significant. DEXA, dual energy x ray absorptiometry; Qcsa, cross-sectional area of the rectus femoris; Qlean, thigh lean mass; Qt, muscle thickness; Tlean, total lean mass.
