Description

Presentation from the BASEM Spring Conference 2018

Objectives

The importance of body composition and BMD in various sports
Over 1000 DXA Body composition studies on elite athletes have been analysed to provide average performance data of the three main components and their breakdown, variations over season of peak activity and position of play in the field for team sports.
Lean and Fat Mass asymmetry and distribution can reflect handicap of extra weight on performance, and suggest actual or latent injury
that should be addressed. DXA offers insight into RED-S, the health of jockeys and the way nutritional advances are impacting on
players rising through club Academies. A pilot study will compare Composition changes with a standardised criterion for performance of
cyclists preparing for a competition season, plus some features relevant to retired athletes and the elderly.

on behalf of British Association of Sport & Exercise Medicine

Recently retired consultant radiologist with significant interest in MSk ultrasound and DXA technology. Initial work in Nuclear Medicine sparked interest in bone density and body composition assays, and has run DXA services in NHS and private hospitals, with recent mobilisation of a scanner to service 7 private hospitals. New technology emerged in 2010 and led to contracts to study leading rugby footballers, and then a number of premiership football clubs, top cyclists, jockeys and some other sports, plus recent scanning for an international study on sarcopenia. Further technical developments have allowed new approaches to fitness and obesity issues, with fresh ideas on variations in Fat and Lean Mass compartments, which will be supported by new algorithms developed by Mark Devlin and Gavin Francis.
