Term Description

Body muscle percentage is measured by a variety of methods, including bio-impedance analysis (BIA) (e.g. Tanita MC-180 MA). Body muscle percentage is equal to a patient's body muscle mass divided by total body weight. This code represents muscle mass only. Other instruments or methods may be used to measure lean body weight (e.g. see LOINCs 8342-8 and 8343-6), which includes muscle, bone (skeletal) and organs - everything but body fat (e.g. LOINC 41982-0).
