The adipose tissue volume, skeletal muscle and skin volume and visceral organ volume were determined using the multiscan CT (computed tomography) technique in 15 patients with acromegaly. The examinations were performed before treatment and 1 year after transsphenoidal adenectomy. The mean body weight did not change significantly after treatment; 91.3 kg and 92.3 kg pre and postoperatively in men and 66.7 kg and 65.9 kg in women respectively. The total adipose tissue volume increased by 7.11… CONTINUE READING
