Objective: Recent studies support the possibility of estimating abdominal fat using a region of interest (ROI) selected by conventional whole body dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). This is an important observation as DXA ROI estimates have some advantages over waist circumference or computed tomography/magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as a means of… CONTINUE READING
