Objective:To develop gender-specific predictive equations to measure the amount of deep-abdominal-adipose-tissue (DAAT) accumulation from simple anthropometric measurements.Design:Cross-sectional study.Subjects:A total of 120 healthy men and women (40–79 years).Measurements:Body weights, circumferences, skinfolds, computed-Tomography (CT)-derived sagittal-diameters and the DAAT areas.Results:High significant correlations are seen between the indices of waist-circumferences, sagittal diameters… CONTINUE READING
