Automated quantitation of pericardiac fat from noncontrast CT.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION Increased abdominal visceral fat has been shown to be a cardiovascular risk factor. Preliminary studies indicate that pericardiac fat (PF) may provide similar information. We aimed to develop new software (QFAT) for automatic quantitation of PF from noncontrast cardiac CT and compare PF measures to other cardiovascular risk factors. METHODS… (More)
