The Nutrition Assessment Laboratory, located in the Endoscopy Unit of the Division of GI/Nutrition at Boston Children's, provides state of the art techniques for the assessment of body composition and energy expenditure.

Percent body fat and lean body mass are measured with a non-invasive technique called "bioelectrical impedance analysis" or BIA. Energy expenditure is also measured non-invasively with indirect calorimetry.

On-going research and clinical trials

A number of research projects are ongoing concerning the role of nutrition and improved health outcomes. These projects include studies on the role of dietary intake and long-term health and bone health, inflammatory bowel disease, obesity, cancer, short bowel syndrome and many others.
