Calculate sex-specific muscle area t-scores for sarcopenia evaluation using healthy, young adult normative reference data. Skeletal Muscle Area (SMA) and Psoas Muscle Area (PMA) should be measured in cm^2 and height-adjusted Skeletal Muscle Index (SMI) and Psoas Muscle Index (PMI) should be measured in cm^2/m^2. Sex-specific statistics (mean, standard devation (SD), and sarcopenia cutoff) at specific vertebra levels are derived from non-contast CT scans of healthy kidney donors. T-score is computed as (value - mean)/SD separately for males and females.
This calculator is not designed to be used as a diagnostic instrument, but instead to provide additional information about the patient being measured.
Morphomics is incredibly collaborative in nature, and its true power comes from bringing together experts and data from many fields to tackle important questions about human health and well-being.
