Upper and Lower Limb Muscle Thickness Measurements in Older Women: Analysis of Variability and Development of Prediction Equations

SUMMARY Purpose. The present study aimed to describe the variability of muscle thickness measures (MT) of arm and thigh muscles, obtained by ultrasound (USD) from community-dwelling healthy older women; and to obtain a predictive equation model for arm, thigh and leg MT based on upper and lower limb circumference measures using a frequentist and Bayesian approach. Methods. Sixty-two … Continued
