The quantification of obesity in respect to subcutaneous adipose tissue and fat distribution is a matter of interest. We recently reported on a new optical device, LIPOMETER, and its ability to measure the thickness of subcutaneous adipose tissue and its advantages compared with other methods. To describe the subcutaneous adipose tissue distribution of the human body in a precise, reproducible, and comparable manner, 15 well-defined body sites distributed from neck to calf on the right body… CONTINUE READING
