“BLOG 3: Fat scanner may give a better picture of health than BMI charts”

  1. This article is about a new special body composition scan that uses very low radiation to figure and detect all of one’s lean and fat body mass and where one carries that fat. I chose this tweet because I am very health conscious and I believe that people should be more aware of how they are treating their bodies and what they can do to benefit them to live healthy, active lifestyles.
  2. This tweet was from CBS News online in a video segment they aired on TV about it and Dr. Steven Goldstein of NYU Langone Medical Center told CBS News the information about the scanner and what it does and it was conducted at Susan Reed’s designated doctor using the special body composition scan. The woman that was aired on TV talking about her own experience with the machine is Susan Reed and after taking the test herself, she said she was very surprised when her doctors called her “skinny fat” based on the results of the test.
  3. A question I have about the article is “Who developed the actual scanner that makes it possible for people to become aware of where their fat is located and how much they have?” Another question I have about the article is “Does Susan still make occasional visits to this doctor to use the scan and see if she has made any progress with her ‘skinny fat’ problem?”

    There doesn’t appear to be any data collection or research discussed in this article. It is more a description of a new technology. A study of whether a technology worked or did not would be a “research” topic, but it doesn’t appear that is what you’ve linked to here.
