'Čechovský K, Lavický P, Jíra I, 1992: Subcutaneous Fat Thickness in Obese Children Measured by Caliper and Ultrasound. Anthropologie (Brno) 30, 3: 223-225'.
The report presented has compared the values of subcutaneous fat thickness in obese children measured by caliper and ultrasound. The measurements were carried out in 23 boys and 21 girls at 3 points of the body (triceps, subscapula, abdomen). The correspondence of both measurements was found only in the fat thickness on the abdomen, occurring in both sexes. A significant correlation between the two methods was seen in males for all the points of measuring, in females only for measurements above the triceps.
