Estimation of body composition using the velocity of ultrasound

, : Estimation of body composition using the velocity of ultrasound. Pig News and Information 13(4): 149N-154N

The use of ultrasound to estimate body composition by the velocity of sound (VOS) technique is discussed. Studies on cattle and sheep, and limited studies on pigs, show that VOS has high potential as a tool for measuring the composition of live animals and carcasses. The main advantages of VOS over other ultrasound techniques are its objectivity and the immediate delivery of a result.
