The NHANES dataset was partitioned by gender and ethnicity and DXA whole body measures of %fat,(More)
Visceral adipose tissue (VAT) is associated with adverse health effects including cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. We developed a dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) measurement of visceral adipose tissue (DXA-VAT) as a low cost and low radiation alternative to computed tomography (CT). DXA-VAT was compared to VAT assessed using CT by an(More)
OBJECTIVE To test a newly developed dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) method for abdominal fat depot quantification in subjects with anorexia nervosa (AN), normal weight, and obesity using CT as a gold standard. DESIGN AND METHODS 135 premenopausal women (overweight/obese: n = 89, normal-weight: n = 27, AN: n = 19); abdominal visceral adipose tissue(More)
