  1. Photon Absorptiometry: A noninvasive method for assessing body composition. It is based on the differential absorption of X-rays (or gamma rays) by different tissues such as bone, fat and other soft tissues. The source of (X-ray or gamma-ray) photon beam is generated either from radioisotopes such as gadolinium 153, iodine 125, or Americanium 241 which emit gamma rays in the appropriate range; or from an X-ray tube which produces X-rays in the desired range. It is primarily used for quantitating bone mineral content, especially for the diagnosis of osteoporosis, and also in measuring bone mineralization.
