The Bone Mass is a measurement object without any specific attributes. See Measurement for more information.
If past measurements should be recorded, the start date must contain the date of measurement.

|XCG80082-1||bone mass by balance|
See Measurement Enums for more information.
See Measurement Catalogs for more information.
Until a person is full-grown (e.g. babies, kids) measurements can be documented as often as the bone mass changes. For adult persons the bone mass should be fixed and only in special situation s (e.g. diseases) new data should be recorded.
