             Figure 1. Case-finding algorithm for sarcopenia diagnosis, as recommended by the European Working
             Group on Sarcopenia in Older People 2. Adapted from [17]. Notice that this algorithm advises the
             measurement of muscle quality via imaging techniques to assess the amount of fat infiltration, or to
             quantify muscle area, volume or mass to calculate relative strength.
