OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether the dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) was a better predictor of abdominal fat, measured by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) at the level of L2-L3, than anthropometric measurements in non-obese men and non-obese women.DESIGN: Observational, cross sectional study.SUBJECTS: 34 healthy subjects (17 men and 17 women) aged 20–53 y with a body mass index (BMI) <30 kg/m2.MEASUREMENTS: Fat distribution parameters including waist circumference and waist-to-hip… CONTINUE READING
